If you want to know who won Super Bowl XLVIII before it even happened, EA Sports’s Madden 25 has you covered. In traditional yearly fashion, Madden simulated the game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks and have predicted that the Broncos will take the Lombardi Trophy home with them after it’s all said and done.
Of course, predictions don’t mean much, but it’s worth noting that Madden has correctly predicted 8 out of the last 10 Super Bowls, so those are pretty good odds to stand by, although it predicted that the San Francisco 49ers would beat the Seahawks in the Conference title game, so who knows really.
In the simulation, the Broncos win in overtime with a score of 31-28. The game also predicts that there will be snow, which seems more and more likely as we get closer to Super Bowl Sunday, but we’ll ultimately have to wait and see. One thing’s for sure, though: it will most likely be really, really cold during the big game.
In the simulated game, quarterback Peyton Manning earned the MVP crown with his 322 passing yards and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught 11 passes for 168 yards and also scored a touchdown for the boys in orange. As for the Seahawks, Marshawn Lynch was the game’s top rusher, running for 109 yards and grabbing a touchdown.
FOX is the host television network for this year’s Super Bowl, and it will also be streaming the game online for free, so those who don’t have a good antenna signal to pick up even local channels can watch the game online.
If you’re in it just for the commercials, you can actually watch many of them right now on YouTube, as many companies and brands are already uploading them to the internet for all to see before the big game on Sunday. It’s also possible that we might see a new Apple commercial during the Super Bowl in celebration of the Macintosh’s 30th anniversary, but we’re not quite sure on that just yet.
