Super Bowl 53 Gets A ‘Madden’ Simulation And The Only Good Thing Is That The Teams Combined For 69 Points
Super Bowl 53 pits the New England Patriots against the Los Angeles Rams in a tasty matchup between the legendary GOAT of head coaches, Bill Belichick, against the young stud who everyone wants a piece of, Sean McVay. People are wondering if this could be the changing of the guard, as the Pats age and the Rams breakthrough to be the next team of the decade. Only time will tell, but it should be a superb game.
Instead of waiting for next weekend, though, we’re getting a taste of Super Sunday thanks to a Madden simulation of Super Bowl 53, which was done the other day to help us get our football fix — even if it’s just through a digital way. The result? Well, if you’re a Patriots hater or a Rams fan, you won’t be happy, because the Madden simulation thinks Tom Brady and Belichick are about to win their sixth Super Bowl title together, edging out the Rams in a tight contest. Take a look below at some of the simulation.
According to the Madden simulation done by CBS’ Pick Six Podcast, Super Bowl 53 is going to be a wild, high scoring affair, with the Patriots beating the Rams 38-31. And, given the fact that the combined points scored by both teams in the simulation was 69, unless you’re a Pats fan, that’s the only positive you’ll take from the outcome.
In an entertaining analysis of the Super Bowl 53 simulation, here’s what CBS Sports’ Will Brinson had to say, per CBS Sports:
On one attempted red zone pass from Brady to Rob Gronkowski, the big tight end had the ball pop up out of his hands … and right into the hands of Julian Edelman for a touchdown. Because the Patriots need more luck in their lives.
For some reason, why wouldn’t any of us be surprised to see that happening in the real game next Sunday? It’s not as if the Patriots aren’t the world’s luckiest sports team or anything, right?
Before you go all aggro and get pissed off with the outcome of this Super Bowl 53 Madden simulation, just remember that the contest was played on a video game — which has shown some unrealistic results lately — so it shouldn’t lead you to punching a hole in your basement wall or anything. Now, if the simulation proves to be true come next weekend, something tells me there will be a lot of rage happening.
