Madden NFL 19 is an American football simulator and the thing about simulator is that it can be used to predict the results of upcoming events.
So, the Madden NFL 19 game was used to predict the results for the NFL 2018 season and to see how accurate the simulation really is.
The simulation of the NFL 2018 season on Madden NFL 19 was done by Yahoo and the results are pretty interesting. According to the Madden NFL 19 simulation, The Jaguars won the Super Bowl defeating the Eagles by 13-7.
However, not everything was bad for the Eagles as they managed to win NFC East for the second time in the row.
Furthermore, Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds won the Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards. The following are the few highlights from the Madden NFL 19 simulation.
- The Jaguars were definitely not a fluke – A year after surprising the entire football world and nearly beating the Patriots in the AFC title game, Jacksonville not only got over that hump, but it also won the Super Bowl, defeating Philadelphia 13-7.
- It wasn’t all bad for Philly – Sure, the Eagles lost in the Super Bowl, but they won the NFC East and conference for the second year in a row. On top of those accomplishments, Carson Wentz took home the league MVP award, throwing for more than 4,100 yards and 42 touchdowns.
- All good things come to an end – Despite his astonishingly good (virtual) season, Brady did decide to hang ‘em up. In addition to Brady, Eli Manning, Marshawn Lynch, Terrell Suggs, Brandon Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald, and Frank Gore called it a career.
- End of an (elite) era in Baltimore – While most expect Joe Flacco to hold onto the starting QB job this season, in ‘Madden,’ the Ravens wasted no time going to Lamar Jackson, who threw for more than 3,800 yards and 25 TDs.
- Cleveland rocks – The Browns finished with an 8-8 record, tying Pittsburgh for the best mark in the AFC North. It also represented the biggest turnaround in the league after finishing 0-16 in 2017.
- OBJ gets his wish – Despite having a down year (60 receptions, 774 yards, 4 TDs), the Redskins made Odell Beckham Jr. the highest-paid receiver in NFL history, signing him to a 4-year, $97.6 million contract ($24.4M annually).
