It's a battle between the master and his protege, as Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes go head-to-head.


Madden 21

Madden is undoubtedly the biggest NFL title in the gaming world, so what better way to predict a winner then to let the EA title decide?

EA Sports have pitted the two Super Bowl finalists against each other in order to finally answer the unanswerable question, Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes?

Super Bowl LV

The Super Bowl simulation has been uploaded to the EA Sports Madden NFL YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure. You can find the full video below.

Let's run you through the key talking points.


KC vs TB

It looks set to be one hell of a contest on Sunday evening, with Madden predicting that Tampa Bay will work their way into an early lead, finding themselves 13-7 up before the Chiefs turn things around to lead 13-14 at the half.

The drama continues though, as the two sides find themselves locked at 27-27 with 6:05 left to go in the fourth quarter.

CHIEFS! KC come out on top!

And with all the pre-match talk centred around the battle between the two QBs, it seems inevitable that it would be Patrick Mahomes who would get the game-deciding touchdown. Rushing and reaching to give his side a 37-7 victory in Tampa!

MVP! Mahomes proves his worth once again!

That's right, it's the Kansas City Cheifs and Patrick Mahomes who come out on top and secure themselves back-to-back Super Bowl titles!

The Chiefs QB throws for 422 yards on 31/41 completions. Those completions include four touchdowns and, just as importantly, not a single interception!

It's a second successive Super Bowl MVP award for Mahomes, who will be hoping that he can replace Tom Brady as the NFL GOAT by the time his career is out.


Brady puts on a show

BRADY! The Bucs man is set to put on a Super Bowl show!

Whilst Madden has the Bucs falling short in a thriller, they still expect Brady to put on a show!


332 yards on a 30/44 completion and three touchdowns makes for a good stat line. That solitary interception proved vital though!

He also combines with his old adversary Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown on the night, and who would rule that combination out on Sunday?
