The Cincinnati Bengals will capture their first Lombardi Trophy this Sunday in Super Bowl LVI, according to Madden NFL 22’s prediction of the upcoming game.
Madden is formally predicting that the Bengals, currently a 4.5-point underdog, will edge out the Los Angeles Rams at soFi Stadium with a 24-21 victory.
In Madden NFL 22’s simulation, Joe Burrow makes history as he throws two touchdown passes and secures the Super Bowl MVP award, becoming the first quarterback to win that honor as well as the Heisman Trophy and NCAA national championship.
Burrow does so in a comeback victory as the Rams led at halftime after touchdowns from running back Sony Michel and wide receiver Cooper Kupp. In the fourth quarter, Matt Stafford and wideout Odell Beckham Jr. connect on a touchdown pass to tie the game at 21.
However, Bengals rookie phenom Evan McPherson breaks their heart with the winning field goal in the final minutes.
