You’ve read my NFL predictions. Now it’s time to take a look at how THE BEST NFL simulation thinks the NFL will play out this year.

Yes, I’m talking about Madden 2018. The fine folks at Madden have a great reputation for building a fantastic realistic game for us hardcore football fans to dive into every single season.

So if Madden is so realistic, surely it should be able to predict how things will play out in an NFL season if I just simulate an entire season….right?


We do it every year. It’s a tradition here at THE USB. If anyone else does it, they’re just posers.
