Madden 17 predicts another Super Bowl win for the New England Patriots

Madden NFL has predicted the New England Patriots will win Super Bowl 51, beating the Atlanta Falcons by three points.

Every year, EA Sports runs a simulation to predict who will win the Super Bowl with the latest iteration of Madden NFL.

Using Madden 17, the LI Game Simulation predicted the New England Patriots would defeat the Atlanta Falcons 27-24 in Super Bowl 51.

In 2015, the simulation not only accurately predicted the winner, but the the final score as well, which was a first.

If Madden 17 is correct and the Patriots win on Sunday, the franchise will be 11/12.

That’s better than most animals such as chickens and mules, and getting rather close to Paul the Octopus’ record.

We’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out if Madden NFL 17 was spot on or not.

Super Bowl 51 kicks off February 5, at 6:30 pm on FOX and is being held at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

Personally, we’ll be watching Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet instead, occasionally checking in, hoping Madden 17 is wrong and the Falcons win.
