Tecmo Bowl Simulation Of Super Bowl 52 Predicts Patriots Will Need To Make Another Comeback
Everyone is already spouting their predictions on who will win Super Bowl 52 including Tecmo Bowl. The original NFL video game that debuted way back in 1989 on the NES, ran a simulation of what will happen in Super Bowl LII. According to this CPU vs. CPU simulation, the New England Patriots will fall to the Philadelphia Eagles in the big game after they fail to make another Super Bowl comeback. If only the Pats had Bo Jackson.
According to the sim, the Eagles will strike first thanks to a 60-yard play when Nick Foles connected with running back Jay Ajayi. Then Ajayi sneaks in for a touchdown on the next play to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead. Offensive lineman Lane Johnson scores another TD for the Eagles after recovering a fumble and rampaging into the end zone. The Patriots force another fumble, this time Foles coughs it up and New England cornerback Eric Rowe takes it to the house to put the Pats on the scoreboard.
