Madden 2014 Super Bowl Prediction – Broncos Beat the Seahawks 38-21
It has become a tradition for the Madden football video game franchise to run 'simulations' of the Super Bowl to predict winners. (They actually have a pretty good track record with their predictions.) This year, Broncos fans will be happy to know that Madden has picked Denver to win it all, in overtime, against the Seahawks.
According to Yahoo, this simulation was done by EA Sports on the Xbox One version of Madden NFL 25 and they predict a final score of 31-28 in favor of Denver in Super Bowl 48. They also predict it as being an overtime thriller that is won with Matt Prater's leg.
