The broadcast will be hosted by NFL announcer Michael Stahan and will feature 4 players on each team comprising past and present NFL celebrities and Snoop Dogg. Super Bowl LV occurs next weekend on Sunday, February 6.
It isn’t real yet, but in the digital world, the Kansas City Chiefs will be the replicate Super Bowl champions. In Madden NFL 21’s official simulation of Super Bowl LV, the Chiefs defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 37-27 to their next successive Lombardi trophy.
The Madden simulation captured the Super Bowl right last year, choosing the Chiefs to beat the 49ers and Mahomes to be MVP.
Even the sim did get it right for Super Bowl LI, picking New England to come from behind to beat the Falcons, but the Madden sim’s perimeter wasn’t nearly as wide as the Patriots’ historic comeback from a 28-3 deficit. Mahomes threw touchdown passes to Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Travis Kelce and two to Tyreek Hill — such as one for 63 yards.
Tampa Bay scored first in the Super Bowl sim using a Ryan Succop field goal, but the game’s first touchdown was a 5-yard pass from Mahomes to Edwards-Helaire to give Kansas City a 7-3 lead in the conclusion of the first quarter. The second quarter saw more actions, as Brady struck Godwin for a 24-yard TD before Mahomes connected with Hill for a score. Succop made another field goal, but the Chiefs led at halftime 14-13.

Wilson was pressured on 44% of the dropbacks. The Seattle Seahawks’ pass block win rate of 24% still stands because their third worst in any game since ESPN started tracking the stat that year.
