Madden NFL 21 is predicting that the Kansas City Chiefs will come out on top against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.
Chicago Bears fans will have to watch as two teams outside of their division face off in the Super Bowl, but it could definitely be worse. The Green Bay Packers could be in the Super Bowl.
And while the football simulator video game is predicting a Chiefs victory, Madden NFL 20 incorrectly predicted the San Francisco 49ers would win last year. And, of course, it’s never a great idea to bet against Tom Brady.
Here’s how it all goes down – at least in Madden NFL 21:
Q1: Tampa Bay scores first with a field goal from Ryan Succop, but Mahomes follows quickly with a 5-yard touchdown pass to running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
Q2: The quarterback battle ignites as Mahomes and Brady go back and forth. Brady finds Chris Goodwin on a 24-yard touchdown pass and Succop hammers another field goal from 46 yards. Mahomes bounces back, going to his favorite wide receiver Tyreek Hill for another Chief’s touchdown, keeping the game within one point with Kansas City out front 14-13.
Q3: Mahomes comes out hot in the second half with a 63-yard touchdown pass back to Hill, who, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, hits a top speed of 22 mph. However, Brady answers with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans. Mahomes, resilient and determined to win, hits fellow Madden NFL “99 Club” member, Travis Kelce for a Chiefs touchdown to end the quarter.
Q4: With just one touchdown between the two teams, it all comes down to the game’s nail biting, final 15 minutes. The final quarter opens with Tampa Bay’s Rob Gronkowski, the G.O.A.T. tight end stepping up for his team with a touchdown. Mahomes responds by pushing his way into the endzone with a 12-yard run squarely putting the moment in Kansas City’s hands. To end the game, the Chiefs kick a final field goal before the clock runs out.
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs face off against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, February 7, 2021. If you plan on watching Super Bowl LV, it is set to air on CBS Chicago, which is channel 2 over the air.
