We use Madden 20 to simulate the NFL Conference Championship playoff games and determine the winners between the Titans-Chiefs and Packers-49ers.

After two riveting weeks of playoff football, we finally find ourselves in the Conference Championship round. Just four teams remain — the Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers. The winners of today’s game move on to the Super Bowl, which will be played on February 2.

Madden 20 has had a rough go of things to start the playoffs. After going 0-4 in the Wild Card round, Madden struggled again to predict the winners of the Divisional Round.

Our simulation went 1-3 last weekend, with the only correct prediction being the 49ers win over the Vikings. To be fair, though, I don’t think anyone outside of Tennessee’s locker room believed the Titans would beat the Baltimore Ravens. But that’s why we play the game.

Madden also incorrectly predicted that the Texans would beat the Chiefs. Although to be fair, the Texans did jump out to a whopping 24-0 lead, only to watch it slip away just as quickly as they captured it.

The result is an AFC Conference Championship game in which the Tennessee Titans, led by Derrick Henry, will travel to Kansas City and attempt to slow Patrick Mahomes and that insanely talented offense. In the NFC, we have the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers traveling west to San Francisco to take on the San Francisco 49ers, led by former Patriot Jimmy Garoppolo.

Which of these teams will come away with the win and punch their ticket to the Super Bowl? Let’s see what Madden predicts in our simulation of the 2019-20 NFL Conference Championship.
