New England Patriots at Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl LIII (53)
Welcome to Jman at Magic Gate. I am Jman and Magic Gate this time is Madden and other football games. This is Super Week the week of the Super Bowl as of this video we are five days out from the big game. Super Bowl LIII (53) will be the Los Angeles Rams host the New England Patriots at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta the home of the Atlanta Falcons.
Football and Video Games go together like chips and salsa or bad calls on a Divisional Championship Sunday. Alright maybe too soon. However, Football video games go back a long way. My grandpa has a an old handheld football game a precursor to a Game Boy, but about the same size. It did not have a digital screen it was really just blinking lights. You were only on offensive during the game being able to run or pass.
Then in the nineties there were games like Super Tecmo Bowl on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Other games were ABC’s Sunday Night Football on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Backyard Football, Blitz, NFL 2K Sports, And of Course the John Madden. Now known only as Madden and the year that season’s Super Bowl will take place this current season’s Super Bowl is in 2019 so this year’s Madden is Madden 2019.
John Madden Football has been the king of not only Football games, but all games. EA Sports is the creator of Madden. Each year EA Sports simulates the Super Bowl. This year they have the New England Patriots winning. EA sports predicts the New England Patriots with 27 and the Los Angeles Rams with 30 points making the final score 30 – 27. So I thought I would play as the game twice as both teams I do not have Madden 19 instead I have Madden 16. Instead of a normal fifteen minute quarters like they will have in the Super Bowl I went with five minute quarters. I also chose to play in pro mode that is like medium difficulty. I flipped a coin to decide who I played as first and the Los Angeles Rams who were the home team I played as first. Because I the Los Angeles Rams will always be the second team name shown. These are my results.
The first game consisted of a large amount of good amounts of offense. Even though at the end of the first quarter the score was New England Patriots 3 – Los Angeles Rams 0. The first half of the first game is did not seem like there was a lot of offense with two interceptions one by each team in the second quarter. Another big event during the second quarter the New England Patriots were on offense when one of the wide receivers fumbled the football recovered his own football then ran it in for the touchdown. This was reviewed and stood. At half time the score was New England Patriots 10 – Los Angeles Rams 3. The Third quarter is when the offense of the game stepped up when Los Angeles Rams threw a 77 yard touchdown pass the longest pass of the game. The third quarter ended with a score of New England Patriots 17 – Los Angeles Rams 10. The fourth quarter was very boring no one scored no one took the ball away making the final score New England Patriots 17 – Los Angeles Rams 10. Some game stats that I thought were important were total yard and time of possession. The New England Patriots total yards was 295 yards with a time of possession of 11:46. The Los Angeles Rams total yards 229 with a time of possession 8:14. Personally I do not like it when I lose when playing Madden however the overall ranking of each team was in favor of the New England Patriots having an overall ranking of 94 and the Los Angeles Rams overall ranking of 82 which is a big difference and at such a disadvantage I only lost by seven points.
The second game was a very different game defense won out during this game. Since I played at the Los Angeles Rams in the first game I played as the New England Patriots in the second game. The first quarter ended in a tie New England Patriots 0 – Los Angeles Rams 0 and each team exchanging punts. This game stayed slow with New England Patriots scoring once for a half time score of New England Patriots 7 – Los Angeles Rams 0. More defense took over with a New England Patriots defense recovering a fumble and running it 60 plus yards for a touchdown making it the only time the New England Patriots held the ball during the third quarter. The third quarter ended with a score of New England Patriots 14 – Los Angeles Rams 0. The fourth quarter had the New England Patriots taking away the ball with an interception. There was also a booth review this game during the fourth quarter this one was reversed making it second and goal on the one yard line with 1:44 to go. The final score of this game was New England Patriots 21 – Los Angeles Rams 0. The New England Patriots completely shutting out the Los Angeles Rams. Just like in the first game here are the stats New England Patriots total yards 198 with a time of possession of 12:37. The amount of time I had the ball as the New England Patriots totally surprised me. I do not remember them having the ball at all during the third quarter except during that 60 yard fumble recovery. The Los Angeles Rams total yards 240 with a time of possession of 7:22.
This will not be the first time these two teams will have played each other in Super Bowl XXXVI (36). The New England Patriots winning with 20 and the St. Louis Rams 17. The final score looked like 20-17 New England. The Rams who at the time were in St. Louis are now back in Los Angeles. My wife and I like to watch the Super Bowl form the comfort of our own couch with delivery. Considering my team did not make the Super Bowl this year I really only want to watch for the commercials. This year the price for each thirty seconds of air time is $5.3 million. That looks like $5,300,000.00. So for that much money I hope it is being spent well.
Based on having played as both teams, What EA Sports Madden 19 simulation have found with the Los Angeles Rams winning, and the last time these two teams faced each other in the Super Bowl. The Results of all four has the New England Patriots as the winners. So I will predict that the New England Patriots will win their second Super bowl in three years making this their sixth all time Super bowl wins.
I will call it New England Patriots 28 – Los Angeles Rams 27. Thank you for reading today. I am excited for Sunday’s Super bowl. However I am not looking forward to who might win. I am also not looking forward to any bad or missed calls they alway seem to get worse in the playoffs and Super bowl. I am looking forward to the next season of the NFL. I am also looking forward to the new AAF Alliance of American Football. The last thing I am looking forward to is your corrections……er……..thoughts on this topic.
