The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 today, cementing the official EA Sports prediction of Super Bowl XLIX.
The Madden NFL 15 Super Bowl Prediction is simulated once on standard Pro difficulty in the Xbox One version using the Super Bowl Matchup with updated rosters. The Patriots Super Bowl victory marks EA Sports’ eighth correct prediction for the past 12 Super Bowls.
The simulation not only called the final score but it also closely foresaw a number of plays and stats that played out in today’s game. For example, the Patriots recorded the first points from a touchdown pass from quarterback Tom Brady; however, it was Brandon LaFell and not Rob Gronkowski who made the touchdown.
