Everyone is looking into their crystal ball for Super Bowl LVI predictions, including the EA Sports Madden video game. Who is their pick in Rams-Bengals?
Everyone and their dog is trying to predict the outcome of Super Bowl LVI. In some cases, you’ve literally got monkeys, pigs, penguins, elephants, and even actual Bengal tigers making picks as well.
Everybody loves the quirky Super Bowl picks every year which is why there is now a massive over-abundance of those, but one pick that a lot of people put stock into is the pick made by the Madden NFL video game.
The game, of course, simulates the action and bases everything off of detailed player ratings, team tendencies, and plenty of other factors. Although both Madden and the 600-pound elephant each have a 50-50 shot of actually getting their predictions right, the Madden prediction holds a bit more weight.
Who is Madden NFL 22 crowning as Super Bowl LVI champs?
You’ve got to love the theatrics of the selection from Madden this year.
Marshawn Lynch has become a primary spokesperson for the game and has obviously come a long way from simply addressing the media so that he wouldn’t get fined.
Lynch delivers a fun performance in which Madden NFL 22 predicts…
…the Cincinnati Bengals will win Super Bowl LVI by a final score of 24-21.
The prediction from Madden doesn’t come with a ton of details, but some of the revelations from Marshawn Lynch in the game simulation included:
- Joe Burrow throwing for 300 yards
- A pick-six by Eli Apple (wouldn’t that be something?)
- A rushing touchdown by Sony Michel
- A receiving touchdown by Cooper Kupp
Marshawn Lynch even made a jab in the video about running the ball inside the five-yard line. Sorry for any Seattle Seahawks fans watching this who rightfully insist their team should have won back-to-back Super Bowls.
The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals are obviously two teams that have a lot in common. The Bengals saw what the Rams were doing with Sean McVay and they obviously wanted a piece of that, hiring Zac Taylor when he was frankly unqualified for the position back in 2019.
Now, the Bengals have reached the Super Bowl in just Joe Burrow’s second NFL season, not to mention he’s coming off of a torn ACL in the middle of his rookie campaign.
There are plenty of crazy predictions you could conjure up for Super Bowl LVI, but the craziest of all might be that the Bengals could actually win. This is a team that went from being the literal worst team in the NFL just two seasons ago to now arguably being crowned champion of the league.
More than a worst-to-first type of story, the rapid ascent of the Cincinnati Bengals has been remarkable. If they can pull off a victory over the Rams in a home game for Los Angeles, it would cap off a truly magical run.
