Who wins Super Bowl LVII? Computers playing Madden NFL 23 have the answer — and the score!

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Super Bowl LVII is here and the only question remaining is who wins the big game. If you can’t wait for the answer, or just want to place a wager on the outcome, one of the most popular sports video games of all time has you covered. A computer simulation of the matchup between the Chiefs and Eagles is projecting that Philadelphia not only wins but runs away with the Lombardi trophy!

According to the latest Super Bowl simulation on EA’s Madden NFL 23, the Eagles will defeat the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday 31-17. According to the video game, Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts will be the Super Bowl MVP, passing for 282 yards, rushing for another 88 yards, and scoring three touchdowns.

Madden has a pretty solid prediction record

If you think a video game can’t predict a real-life sporting event, don’t be so sure. The Madden franchise has been simulating every Super Bowl matchup for the last 19 years. The game’s record? A pretty impressive 11-8 since Super Bowl 38. That record also includes perfectly predicting the Patriot’s 28-24 win over the Seahawks in Super Bowl 49.

Although the game developers actually lean on artificial intelligence to perfect its game predictions, Madden’s recent Super Bowl record has been less impressive. The annual computer simulation has failed to pick the winner in four of the last five Super Bowls.
