The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in a 35 to 31 victory—or at least that’s the latest prediction from EA Sports’ Madden NFL 20.

The Madden franchise has correctly predicted 10 out of the last 16 Super Bowl outcomes, though the percentage of accurate predictions has gone down steeply in recent years. Three out of the past four Super Bowls, Madden NFL has gotten wrong. Will this year be different? Will the Chief’s offense manage to eek out a win over the 49er’s defense?

That’s the big problem with the Madden prediction. The video game, for whatever reason, seems to favor a strong offense over a strong defense. Sometimes that pans out—like when Madden NFL 15 predicted the outcome of Super Bowl XLIX right down to the exact score.

Mahomes is MVP

Sometimes it doesn’t, like last year when the game predicted the Rams would beat the Patriots 30 to 27. The final score? Patriots 13, Rams 3.

This year, the game predicts that Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be the Super Bowl MVP with 392 passing yards, four touchdowns and an interception. He’ll make history with the most passing touchdowns in a postseason ever. Mahomes just so happens to be on the cover of Madden NFL 20:
