When it comes to Super Bowl predictions, is Madden the new champion?

The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 Sunday night, and that final score was predicted earlier in the week in a digital simulation of the game complied by EA Sports’ Madden franchise of video games.

Not only did the video accurately predict the final score, but it also showed New England’s Julian Edelman scoring the final touchdown to give the Patriots the win. As fate would have it, Edelman did score what would end up being the final touchdown in the game Sunday.
