EA Sports has been running Super Bowl simulations using Madden for more than a decade now with a respectable record of nine correct predictions and three false ones. However, this year it didn't just pick the winning team, it also foresaw that the Patriots would be trailing in the third quarter only for Tom Brady to deliver a game-clinching pass to Julian Edelman for a final score of 28-24. Yahoo Tech notes that the simulator also got some of the finer details right, including the first team to score, Brady's number of touchdowns — and was also only 27 yards off nailing the quarterback's total passing yardage.

My dads old mobster bookie must have had the same game back in the seventies...Huh?
Wait just a darn minute. They didn't have computer simulations back then. Oh, wait. They did have mobsters calling plays back then just like today.
Wake the Hell up. NFL is a racket. The "super bowl" sure woke a lot of people up this year.

I wonder if both teams were CPU controlled... If they were, than that is quite interesting. In some ways it makes me wonder how intelligent these simulations are becoming. I wonder if Madden '16 will predict this well next year, or if it was just a lucky fluke. I am thinking it was just luck of the draw, but who knows these days.
Annual EA Super Bowl simulation
Since 2004, EA games has run a simulation of the Super Bowl using the latest game in the Madden NFL series and announced the result. The game simulations conducted by EA have correctly predicted nine of the last twelve Super Bowl winners, with an exact final score prediction for the 2015 game that also predicted a score of 14-24 in favor of Seattle in the third quarter. The predictions were incorrect in 2008, 2011, and in 2014. EA also releases a computer-generated description of the simulated game as if it were a summary of the real Super Bowl. The results of the simulated and actual Super Bowl games are listed below.
