Madden game got Super Bowl score on the nose — and that's not all

BY foxsports • February 2, 2015

Every year, EA Sports simulates the upcoming Super Bowl using the Madden video game. It's usually not too far off, but this year's prediction for the Super Bowl was really close.

In fact, Madden 15 correctly predicted that the New England Patriots would beat the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 28-24.

But that's not where the creepiness ends. The game also predicted that the Patriots would rally from a 24-14 deficit in the third quarter (check), that wide receiver Julian Edelman would score the go-ahead touchdown (check) and that quarterback Tom Brady would be named Super Bowl MVP (check).

Madden had correctly predicted eight of the last 11 Super Bowls before Sunday's matchup, so picking the winner isn't out of the ordinary. Getting this close to what actually happened, though, is something special.
