I decided to do a Madden 21 Simulation of the Super Bowl 2022. The rosters are updated completely with all offseason moves including free agency and the draft. I will do another simulation when Madden 22 is released with slightly more accurate ratings, but these are very close.
Let’s get right to it.
For the AFC:
- Baltimore Ravens (1st seed)
- New England Patriots (2nd seed)
- Kansas City Chiefs (3rd seed)
- Tennessee Titans (4th seed)
- Cleveland Browns (5th seed)
- Las Vegas Raiders (6th seed)
- Buffalo Bills (7th seed)
For the NFC:
- New Orleans Saints (1st seed)
- San Francisco 49ers (2nd seed)
- Dallas Cowboys (3rd seed)
- Minnesota Vikings (4th seed)
- Arizona Cardinals (5th seed)
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6th seed)
- Green Bay Packers (7th seed)
Wild Card Round:
Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots – 43 – 31 (Bills)
Las Vegas Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs – 41 – 10 (Raiders)
Cleveland Browns @ Tennessee Titans – 42 – 7 (Browns)
Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers – 24 -14 (Packers)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Dallas Cowboys – 35 – 7 (Cowboys)
Arizona Cardinals @ Minnesota Vikings – 34 – 31 (Cardinals)
Buffalo Bills @ Baltimore Ravens – 28 – 17 (Ravens)
Las Vegas Raiders @ Cleveland Browns – 38 – 7 (Browns)
Green Bay Packers @ New Orleans Saints – 38 – 28 (Saints)
Arizona Cardinals @ Dallas Cowboys – 28 – 21 (Cardinals)
Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens – 28 – 21 (Ravens)
Arizona Cardinals @ New Orleans Saints – 20 – 17 (Cardinals)
Arizona Cardinals vs Baltimore Ravens – 42 – 7 (Ravens win Super Bowl)

Now, this is only Madden, so something tells me this may be a little off. But I do believe the result will be the same in real life… the Ravens winning the Super Bowl. I think it is their year and Lamar Jackson is ready to quiet the critics yet again. The same way he did when they said he couldn’t throw and he won the MVP. Now, he will win a Super Bowl. But a big part will be other players stepping up too, like Hollywood Brown and the Ravens defense.
