The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

IT WAS SIMULATION, I KNOW

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow can light up one more victory cigar – at least if the virtual prediction of Sunday’s Super Bowl ends up coming true.

In the official Madden ’22 simulation of Super Bowl LVI, the Bengals knock off the L.A. Rams, 24-21, at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and it is Burrow, the second-year quarterback out of LSU, who becomes the game’s Most Valuable Player.

In the simulation, Burrow completed 32 of 44 passes for 317 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, and led Cincinnati down the field to set up kicker Evan McPherson for a 49-yard game-winning field goal as time expired to give Cincinnati the win.

Who are we to argue? It’s almost verbatim of how the wild and wool 2022 playoffs played out. ow the youngest team to ever play in a Super Bowl (25.8 average age).

Stat Of the Day

From this week’s Playbook Super Bowl Guide Newsletter: Teams with the lower win percentage (Bengals) are 11-4 SU and 14-1 ATS in the last 15 Super Bowls.
