If you believe in Madden curses or curses or Madden, this might be of interest to you. EA Sports ran a simulation for the upcoming NFL season and they are pitting the Chicago Bears against the New England Patriots in the 2013 Super Bowl:
The Chicago Bears and New England Patriots won their respective divisions and took home the overall number one seeds in the playoffs according to the Madden NFL 13 Season Simulation, powered by EA SPORTS Arena. The Patriots followed up last year’s Super Bowl appearance with a dominant season, securing a 12-4 record on the arm of NFL MVP Tom Brady. Brady delighted fantasy football owners everywhere by tossing a record-tying 50 touchdown passes against only 8 interceptions.
The Bears matched the Patriots’ record, also going 12-4 to win a tightly contested NFC North. Chicago needed every win they could muster, as the Green Bay Packers also ended the season at 12-4, but with the Bears holding an edge in the tiebreakers the Packers were relegated to the 5th seed in the playoffs.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll buy into the Madden predictions. Heck, they’ve correctly picked 6 of the last 8 Super Bowl winners.
