Usually, we hear about the Madden curse. It belongs to whoever is on the cover of the popular video game.
Every year, however, Madden runs a simulation to see how the teams will fare that season. This year, Madden has predicted that the Chicago Bears will finish 12-4 and clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFL.
As well as that, Chicago is destined for New Orleans.
But beware, it's not time to celebrate yet. Last season, although Madden had their prediction of the Green Bay Packers as the No. 1 seed correct, the simulation had the Pittsburgh Steelers winning the AFC. They, however, didn't even win their own division.
So take this information with a grain of salt, but remember, expectations are high this season in the Windy City.
