Madden 16 Simulation: The NFL Playoffs

1 of 12

Here is a Madden 16 simulation of the entire NFL Playoffs, and the Super Bowl teams will likely surprise you.

The NFL playoff field is set. What better way is there to get us ready than to complete an entire Madden 16 simulation of the entire playoffs? That’s exactly what we did here, from the Wild Card games all the way through until a Super Bowl Champion was crowned.

Before we get to the results, here are a few of the rules that that were used to keep things as realistic as possible:

  • All games were simulated using the most updated roster, with adjustments made for recent significant injuries.
  • Games were simulated using “super sim,” on All-Pro difficulty with six-minute quarters. (This leads to the most realistic stats.)
  • Injuries were left on, but there were no QB or star RB injuries early in games that would skew results.
  • Games were simulated on the PS4 version of the game. It shouldn’t matter on the results, but there you have it.
  • Games were only simulated once. All results were final, even if they seemed fluky.

Now that that’s out of the way, I bet you’re ready to find out what Madden 16 thinks is going to happen in the NFL playoffs. Let’s find out!
