Before we start the predictions, I want to take a moment and talk about the longevity and success of this league. 19 years ago, I was a 21 year old kid with an idea to create an online madden league, but really had no idea how it worked. With the help of Dolan (Lhu27) we created the MOF. We had some bumps and bruises in our first few seasons, but now 61 seasons later here we are. One of the most prestigious leagues out there. As we enter our unprecedented 62nd season, a number that not many leagues have seen, I want to thank every single one of you for making this league what it is. I say this all the time, but this is a wonderful hobby for all of us. Something to get our minds off the everyday grind and have a place to escape for a few hours a week. I take pride and pleasure in providing that for you guys, so again, thank you for making the MOF great!
Welcome to the Season 62 Predictions! Not to grind my own gears, but out of the 14 teams predicted to make the Season 61 playoffs, I got 5 right in the AFC and 4 right in the NFC. 0 for 4 in the title games once again, but the good news is we saw a new champion crowned as Madden '21 came to an end. Coach Pettigrew95 won his 3rd MOF Super Bowl as he defeated Canesbucs1's Cardinals 34-21. However, now it's time to wash our hands of Madden '21 and PS4. We are now moving to PS5 and Madden '22!! With a new game and new system comes new challenges, so as of right now the league is waiting for an EA update to begin the edition but I promise you, it will be worth the wait. While we wait, we have content like this to go through! Season 62 saw some surprises go down already, as the mighty Coach Knightnoles has rode off into the sunset along with Bhicks14 and Vlade_Divadacs91. Three perennial playoff coaches now gone. Which opens up the league to new champs and new playoff teams. Will we see Coach MackDaddy dominate in the NFC? Or will we see Coach Betts move away from Washington and win in Miami? We are seeing Coach Jfon come back home to Tampa Bay and Dre continue his legacy in Jacksonville as he enters his 12th straight season in Duval. I have a feeling we're going to see a lot more steady and even competition this edition and it starts with Season 62! Who will take home the crown? Who will win the awards? All this and more will be answered, as we go through our Season 62 predictions.
*Remember all these predictions are very in depth. We go game by game with the current schedule and predict games 1 by 1 and that's how we come up with our algorithms. Remember this is all in good fun and for some, some bulletin board material! Enjoy

The AFC East has seen a complete overhaul of coaches entering this edition of Madden, well everyone but BuffaloBill! We are seeing arguably the greatest coach in MOF history Coach Betts in Miami, DoubleD who is one of, if not the best GM in the MOF with the Patriots, and Enzo who always seems to win double digit games, with the Jets. We begin with the Miami Dolphins and Coach Portisss26, aka Betts. It's odd to see Betts not with Washington, but Washington was in high demand this edition, so it was inevitable. The Miami Dolphins are not too shabby themselves. Lots of cap space, the best actually entering the season. They have a lot of positions that are ready to develop especially at QB in Tua Tagovailoa. With speed at WR with Fuller and Waddle, these guys have a bunch of weapons. Betts is known to make huge moves and I'm sure he will do the same here in Miami as well. I am predicting Miami to win this division, and be a force to be reckoned with from day 1 of this edition. Coach Enzo finds himself with his favorite team this edition in the Jets. Last edition Coach Enzo had the Chiefs, and was in a juggernaut division. The division will still be just as tough this edition with Miami and New England leading that charge. I really like the Jets this edition, because you can pretty much go in any direction you want. They have the youth, they have the cap space, and draft capita to really turn into a dominant team. Enzo will have to improve the offensive weapons of this team, something they are seriously lacking, but with that cap he should be able to do that. I expect Enzo to be a playoff team for sure, and if things fall his way, he could end up winning the division. We look at the New England Patriots and Coach DoubleD187 next. We all know DoubleD is a fantastic GM, one of the best drafters in the MOF and developers. Back to back editions he developed wide receivers to be absolute studs and i don't see any differences this edition. I really like the Mac Jones pick from the Pats, and I expect him to start right away with the loss of Cam Newton. The Patriots are still excellent on defense, and i think people forget that. They are the top team in defensive coverage in the MOF. They also acquired TE Hunter Henry and TE Jonnu Smith in the off-season for some additional weapons. DoubleD will have fun with these guys, the Pats are sneaky good and after 1 off-season I'm sure they will have a ton of weapons. I expect the Pats to fight for a wild-card but I think they will fall short this season, ask me about next season. The Buffalo Bills are back with Coach BuffaloBill (ironic) and I'm sure Bill couldn't be happier. The Bills are LOADED on offense. Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and company make these guys a top team entering Madden '22. Their defense needs some work for sure, their secondary is nice but other than that they will need some help. I think that will be Bill's downfall this season. He's in a very tough division, and he needs an off-season or two to fix that defense before he can really compete. The AFC East is going to be very competitive, and the Bills are going to need to step up their game if they want to compete.

The AFC North has been absolutely dominated by the Cleveland Browns over the past 19 seasons, with 17 division titles and 19 playoff appearances in a row. We've seen it start with Coach Witness, Pettigrew, Mackdaddy and Witness last edition. This edition we have another hall of fame coach in Canesbucs taking over for the most successful franchise in recent MOF history. We also see the Baltimore Ravens led by CoachQKP35, the Bengals and Shawtypizzle, and the Steelers with former Bears HC Remo357. We begin with the Baltimore Ravens and CoachQKP35. Coach Q has been dabbling around franchises over the past few editions, the Eagles, Seahawks, and Saints have been his teams but he just hasn't gotten the feel for success with anyone since Dallas. Well, we're about to see the old Q make a comeback. The way he's been scrimmaging with these Ravens, looks like he's going to be a force to be reckoned with. Lamar Jackson and Hollywood Brown are cheat codes and I expect a huge, HUGE season out of both of those guys. The Ravens are going to be right there when the smoke clears, I expect them to win the division, and if not, they will definitely be a wild-card team. I am expecting big things out of Baltimore this season. The Cleveland Browns, as we mentioned above, have a legacy growing that is starting to really impress the entire MOF. 19 straight playoff appearances, and i don't see any way it doesn't turn into 20. Coach Canesbucs1 (Healy) is fresh off a Super Bowl appearance in Season 61 when he was with the Arizona Cardinals. He fell short against the Patriots and Pettigrew, but his skills are a perfect fit for the Browns, who are one of the most talented teams in the game on both sides of the ball. They are young, athletic, and have a very good offensive line. All recipes for success. It will be an edition long battle with Q's Ravens and I cannot wait to watch. The Cincinnati Bengals are coached this edition by Coach Shawtypizzle. Shawty, of course, is the only MOF coach in history with a sub .500 career winning percentage that has a Super Bowl ring. That doesn't make it any less special, the keyword is Super Bowl ring. Shawty last edition was the Miami Dolphins and struggled all 5 seasons, he missed the playoffs and probably had one of his worst editions of his career. What's great is you can sweep that under the rug, and wipe the slate clean. The Bengals are one of the worst teams to begin a franchise with, according to experts. They do have good cap space and draft capital. They are young, and have good defensive coverage as well. But the rest of the team is lacking. They have a QB that needs to be developed, and they need to get some weapons. Shawty has some rebuilding to do if he wants to compete with Q's Ravens and Canes' Browns. Last but not least is Coach Remo and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's very odd to see Remo leaving his Chicago Bears, where he spent the last 16 seasons. Over those 16 seasons however, he never won more than 6 games. The Steelers are a defensive heavy team, just like the Bears, and when Big Ben retires they will have one of the best salary situations in the league. The Bears and Steelers are very very similar so Remo should be familiar with the style. He just needs to grab a young QB in the draft, and start building these guys up. It's going to take a season or two to really have a great team ready to compete, but for now, i think Remo will struggle a bit.

The more things change, the more they stay the same in the AFC South. The most dominant coach/team in the AFC South for the past 11 seasons is Coach BigDre245 and the Jacksonville Jaguars. During that 11 season span, the Jaguars have only had 2 losing seasons, and 6 playoff appearances. Dre looks to continue his dominance over the division this edition as well. The Titans, Colts and Texans are all seeing new faces as the coaching carousel spins for this edition. The Titans with Hall of Fame Coach YoungCat21, the Colts with up and coming Boobie_MTZ7 and the Texans with rookie coach T.Haynes. However, we will start with who we think will be the division champion, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Once you start playing with the same team for a while, you just start to get a feel for them and that's exactly what Dre has done in Jacksonville. Now, playoff success has eluded Dre in the past but maybe with the new phenom rookie QB Trevor Lawrence, the Jaguars have that missing piece to bring them to the promise land. I think Dre has the skill and enough talent to win this division, even though the first season of a new edition isn't always Dre's best, i still think he will have a very solid season. The Tennessee Titans are coached up by YoungCat21. YoungCat made his MOF comeback last season as he took over the Carolina Panthers. During that time Coach YoungCat won 31 games and lost 17. He won an MVP with McCaffrey and absolutely dominated the ground game. He wasn't able to have much playoff success but now with full control from the start, I think we're going to see some great things out of Coach YoungCat. The addition of WR Julio Jones was arguably the biggest move in the off-season for any team, period. Also, be ready to see HB Derrick Henry take the league by storm and put up McCaffrey type numbers of the past 3 seasons. I expect YoungCat's Titans to be a playoff team and battle for this division. It will be a fun edition to see Dre and YoungCat go at it 10+ times. Next on tap are the Indianapolis Colts and Coach Boobie_MTZ7. Boobie made his return to the MOF as well last season, when he took over the Eagles mid-edition. In his 3 seasons last edition he made the playoffs with the Eagles, all 3 times. He even made it all the way to the NFC title game in Season 60 as a wild-card. So Boobie is a legit contender in the MOF here. I do expect Boobie to struggle just a little bit in this division with two Hall of Fame coaches, but I have been wrong before. Boobie has a talented team in Indy, with a good line and a young team. Carson Wentz is a question mark, and he will need to be dev'd up to stand a chance as a starter. I think it will take a season for Boobie to get back to the playoffs but he should be around .500. The Houston Texans and rookie Coach T.Haynes is in for an unfortunate tough season. As we all know, we do not really give rookie's good predictions, only because we don't really know what to expect coming out of the gate. However, with the Houston Texans, they are rated one of the worst teams in the game. Thankfully real life doesn't imitate MOF sometimes, and Deshaun Watson will be the starting QB for these Texans. They lost JJ Watt, but they have some defensive playmakers. Their rush defense will need some help though. If i were Haynes, I'd probably trade Watson and completely rebuild this team from the ground up. I do not expect the Texans to win many games, especially in this division.

Last edition we saw the AFC West completely dominate the reset of the MOF with 4 championships in 5 seasons. Coach Knight with the Broncos won 3, and MackDaddy won 1 with the Chargers. Now, the AFC West is considered one of the most wide open divisions in the entire league. Hall of Fame nominee MrRoclo is heading up the Los Angeles Chargers. Hall of Fame Coach Trigrdan has the young Denver Broncos. Coach Bubbaduran07 is with the explosive Kansas City Chiefs, and rookie Coach Chefscoopa is with the Vegas Raiders. We start with the Los Angeles Chargers, who have a great roster. Justin Herbert is on the rise, and they have cap space. They could use some weapons on offense, but Roclo is good at building (just not in the draft). I expect Roclo to be the front runner in this division, but it's a close one to call. It could go a number of different ways, but the way his skill mixes with this team, I think the Chargers will be the division winner. The Denver Broncos and Coach Trig I think will be right there with the Chargers fighting for the division. Trig is a Hall of Fame coach, and knows how to use his weapons on offense. The problem is they don't have a true number 1 QB. They do however, have some nice weapons at WR and we all know how Trig likes those weapons (ie: Andy Isabella). Denver will be a team to watch out for moving forward, but it might take Trig a season to get them together. Coach Bubba had a tough time last edition, he came back and took over the Jets starting Season 60 and went 5-11, in Season 61 Bubba went 6-10. Bubba had some bright spots with the Jets, but the team itself was in shambles so Bubba was behind the 8 ball from the start. Now taking a team from the start of an edition, will be a whole new experience. The Chiefs are arguably the highest rated team in the game and it will be hard NOT to win games with these guys. The Chiefs could be the biggest surprise of the MOF. If Bubba starts hot and figures this game out, he could easily win this division with this team. The Chiefs did not lose much, and with Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, its just not fair. I did predict the Chiefs to just finish under .500 but again, I am not confident in my predictions for this division. We finish with the Las Vegas Raiders and rookie Coach Chefscoopa. Like we mentioned above, we really don't predict rookies to have much success since we do not know much about them yet. The Raiders offense is actually rated pretty well, especially with the speedy Ruggs at WR. The defense needs a complete rebuild though, ranked very low in every single category. The name of the game though is this wild-card division. Not knowing much about this rookie makes him dangerous in a wide-open division. Just on shear talent/rating of the Raiders, I expect them to struggle in the first season.

For the first time since Season 50 we are seeing a new face in Washington. Coach Estrada has come in and taken over for Coach Betts. I'll admit, it's strange to see someone else sporting that Red and Gold, but sometimes a change is good, for everyone. We also see a familiar face back in Dallas, Coach RobPowers who spent Madden '20 with Dallas is back with America's team. The Eagles have a rookie coach in Mlett and the Giants have brought in Coach Dougalicious, formerly of the Raiders. We start with Coach Estrada and the Washington Football Team. I think this is Estrada's division to lose, he is the clear front runner as he has boasted a fantastic career record so far in his young MOF career. Estrada went 69-11 last edition, and 3-5 in the post-season. He is a lot like Coach Dre in that respect, he just cannot find the post-season success but has a ton of regular season success. Washington is loaded on defense and that's where Estrada shines. This team fits his style better than any coach/team in the MOF this edition. They will need to upgrade at QB but that really won't be a problem for Estrada I'm sure. I expect WFT to win this division by a handful of games. The Dallas Cowboys and Coach RobPowers are back together for Madden '22. We did see Rob have some great success in Madden '20 with these Cowboys, going 10-6 three seasons in a row and completely dominating with Ezekiel Elliot and Demarcus Lawrence. However, Elliot is getting older, Lawrence is getting older but the Cowboys still have a lot of talent. They still have the best offensive line in the game, and they have a lot of weapons on offense. However, the downfall is that they are extremely cap strapped. The new contract for Dak is weighing them down and Rob will have to make some really tough moves to get out of cap hell, and it might start with trading Elliot. I expect the Cowboys to have some success, but I think Rob will be a season or two away from really putting the pressure on the rest of the division, but he's my clear cut 2nd place team this season. Coach Mlett21 is coming into the league as a rookie and with the Philadelphia Eagles. We know that Mlett's team is the Eagles, so that's a plus when you're playing with your team. We also know Mlett is extremely helpful in all aspects of the league, which is a great asset to have. However we do not know much about his gameplay. All we know is that the Eagles are not a very good team. They do however, have some things they can build around. They have very good offensive and defensive lines and when you have that kind of talent to work with, you can build your team back up pretty quickly. The QB position will be a struggle, as we do not know who will be starting Hurts or Minshew, my money is on Hurts. I do not expect much out of the rookie and the Eagles, but again, he's a rookie. The New York football Giants are coached by Dougalicious this edition, and the Giants are a sneaky bunch of talented players. They are well balanced on offense and defense. With Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay. They also have good defensive backs and pretty good draft capital. Doug will have to build that offensive line though, which ranks 2nd worst in the MOF. As we know, Doug's tenure has not been the greatest thus far. Going 2-14, 4-12 and 4-12 again in his three complete seasons here. I do not expect the Giants to really fight for a division, especially with Estrada here, but 2nd place really isn't out of the question. Expect Doug to turn some heads, and maybe be a season or two away from building these guys up.

The NFC Norris division, aka the NFC North sees some new faces arriving to go along with the staple that is Coach Krayzie and the Minnesota Vikings. We are seeing two hall of fame coaches joining the division with MackDaddy going to the Packers and Pettigrew coming to the windy city. We are also seeing Texmexgalvan going to the Detroit Lions, taking that Detroit Challenge this edition. We begin with the Green Bay Packers and Coach MackDaddy. First off, how did we let this happen? The Packers falling all the way down to 18th in the draft? The Packers are one of the highest rated teams in the game. Sure they have some cap issues, but as soon as Aaron Rodgers retires, or is cut, their cap space is fine. Mack and the Pack are going to be one of the most dangerous things we've ever seen here in the MOF. But back to MackDaddy. Coach Mack has been here a total of 24 seasons, and has made the playoffs 24 times. 100% of the time, Mack is in the playoffs. That is incredible stat and it shows the commitment Mack has to the MOF and to his craft. I don't think anything changes this season. I expect Mack not only to win the division, but to also earn the top seed in the NFC. Sure, it won't be a cake walk, Pettigrew and Krayzie are not pushovers, but Mack and the Pack are going to be fun to watch! The Chicago Bears are seeing a new coach behind the sticks for the first time in 16 seasons. Coach Pettigrew95, the defending champion i might add, is here to bring some prestige back to what was once the most storied franchise in MOF history. The Bears have not had a winning season since Season 45, and before that, Season 40. So that's two winning seasons since Season 40. All that will absolutely change when Pettigrew takes over. The Bears have youth, not highly rated youth, but they are young and they have cap space. They also have QB Justin Fields who is on a rookie deal for the next 4/5 seasons which will really help Pettigrew's cap space. I expect the Bears to battle with Mack for that division, but they will most likely just fall short, but I don't doubt these guys will be in the playoffs as the top wild-card. Watch out, the Bears are back! Coach Krayzie300 is back with the Vikings after spending the last 5 seasons of Madden '21 there. Last edition Krayzie made the playoffs 3 out of 5 times, including 2 division wins. He had a lot of success with Danielle Hunter and Dalvin Cook, which both come back and are even bigger monsters this edition. They definitely have some weapons on offense, but we're not totally sold on Kirk Cousins. Krayzie might need to cut ties with Cousins and get a running mate for Danielle Hunter to compete with the two Hall of Famers in this division. The Vikings could easily earn a playoff spot in a wide-open NFC , but they will have to win at least 10 games to get there, which might be difficult when you're probably losing 4 off the bat to the Packers and Bears. The Detroit Lions are bringing in Coach Texmexgalvan, who spent the last 5 seasons in Dallas. Coach Tex has not had a winning season since Season 51 with the Los Angeles Chargers. Couple that with the fact that the Lions are the worst team in the game, it all just spells disaster. Especially in this juggernaut division. Tex is ready for the challenge however, he took these guys knowing that it will be a rebuilding process. Jared Goff is now the QB, and they have a ton of draft capital to work with. So sit down, grab a drink and a cigar and start stripping these guys down Eddie, you're in for a long haul! But it will be a fun challenge.

Best Draft Selection: TE Kyle Pitts - ATL (81 ovr)
All is correct with the world once again as Jfon returns to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! We also see BigReg returning to the Atlanta Falcons, in what we call a "shocker". We have the return of SonGoku as he finds himself in Carolina, and last but not least Mindenplaya is in New Orleans coaching the Saints. We will begin with Jfon's Buccaneers. I think I speak for the entire league when I say that I am ecstatic that Jfon is back with the Bucs. It was very weird to see him elsewhere last edition, elsewhere as in the Cincinnati Bengals. Jfon did not have a very good time there, even though he had 2 winning seasons at 9-7, he missed the playoffs all 5 seasons and that was after a 4 season playoff streak with the Bucs. Thankfully I think that will be turning into a new streak as the Bucs are if not the best team in the game, they are the 2nd best. Of course they have the expiring Tom Brady, who at 44 is still a top QB in the game, but realistically he will be starting a downward spiral in ratings after the 1st season, if he even stays after the 1st season. So Jfon will have to figure out a replacement pretty quickly. Defensively, these guys are loaded as well, great rush and athleticism. The Bucs are built to be a strong team for seasons to come, and I expect Jfon to win this division this season, and be a problem for the rest of the NFC as well. The Carolina Panthers are coached by SonGoku this edition. SonGoku took some time away after his 10-6 finish with the Jets in Season 59. Goku is now back, and quietly is a strong competitor. I believe he can absolutely battle Jfon for the division, if Jfon has any hiccups, but even if the Panthers do not win the division, they will be right in the thick of the wild-card race as well. With the top rated HB in the game on your roster in Christian McCaffrey, anything is possible. We will see how Sam Darnold holds up, as he follows Goku down to Carolina, who also have Robbie Anderson and DJ Moore as nice offensive weapons. They will need to build that offensive line and rush defense as they are weak on those areas, but I believe Goku can do that and then some. The Atlanta Falcons are back with Coach Big Reg and for the first time since Reg has been here in the MOF, he is without Julio Jones to start an edition. A huge blow to the offensive side of the ball, and quite possibly the biggest off-season loss of any team coming into the edition. Reg has seen his fortune turn over the past 3 seasons as he has finished 5-11, 7-9, and 7-9 again. Although he won the division at 7-9 last season, things just don't feel the same in Atlanta as they used to. Reg was a staple for the playoffs each and every season, but the past edition was tough on him and as the Falcons start to decrease in ratings, so does Reg's record. Reg has some rebuilding to do, they have some cap problems and a low rated QB. Matt Ryan is the scapegoat and i expect him to be traded or cut by the end of the season. With that said, I still think Reg has the talent to compete in this division and conference, so don't be shocked if Reg and his lucky charm find his way into the playoffs. Coach Mindenplaya is not really getting the respect he deserves as we are predicting him to finish last in this division, with the New Orleans Saints. Minden's last 4 seasons have not been very good, as he has gone 7-9, 4-12, 4-12, and 6-10 with the Seahawks. There was once a time when Minden was also a staple to make the playoffs each and every season. Before these last 4 seasons, Minden made the playoffs 8 out of 12 seasons with the Texans and Seahawks. I'm not sure what to expect from Minden, but with the loss of Drew Brees it's going to be tough to get Winston going especially when they have the 2nd worst cap situation in the game. With bad cap and being in need of a QB, these guys are going to struggle a bit. I also would not be shocked to see Minden prove us completely wrong and win 10 or 11 games.

The NFC West looks to be on paper a very interesting division. We see the newly inducted MOF Hall of Famer MrWitness36 with the underrated San Francisco 49ers, Commish Jeff with super athletic Arizona Cardinals, Bengalsonly with the Rams, and Coach Hobo taking the ever so dangerous Seattle Seahawks. We begin with the San Francisco 49ers and Coach MrWitness. Witness has been a fantastic coach over the past few seasons, making the playoffs in each of the last 7 seasons in a row. I don't see anything changing here as the 49ers are a highly rated team, with a young rookie QB in Trey Lance and a very good defense. I look for Nick Bosa to be the next Myles Garrett as Witness just knows how to handle great defensive lineman. This division should be his, barring any kind of catastrophic injuries, I expect the 49ers to be a real contender for the NFC title. The Arizona Cardinals are bringing in the Commish to coach them this edition. Commish swore up and down that he would be leaving the NFC West, a division where he's spent the last 9 seasons (Rams, 49ers) and looks like he will be spending some more seasons as well. The Cardinals fit Commish's style very well. The biggest reason he went with Arizona is because of Isaiah Simmons, period. The MLB with 93 speed is something that makes the Commish's mouth water. Throw in Kyler Murray, Andy Isabella, DeAndre Hopkins, AJ Green, JJ Watt, Budda Baker, and you have a very solid team that could do some damage. I do not think he will dethrone Witness as the NFC West champ, but i do think the Cardinals will be a playoff team. They are just too talented not to win 10+ games with. The Los Angeles Rams are coached by Bengalsonly7 this edition, who really needs to change his handle because its confusing, haha. Anyways, the Rams are scary. They just acquired Sony Michel to go along with Cam Akers in the backfield, the addition of Matthew Stafford really upgrades them at QB and Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey on the defensive side of the ball is just not fair. Coach Bengalsonly however, has struggled a bit over the past few seasons. Finishing with 1 winning season in his last 6. On the contrary, he was the Texans and Raiders. The Rams are a much better team. I do think he could surprise people, and jump ahead of the Commish if the Commish has any setbacks but for now, we are predicting a mediocre season for the Rams. Last but certainly not least are the Seattle Seahawks and Coach Hobo. Hobo cemented himself in the record books last season, and not in a good way. Hobo's QB Sam Darnold threw 81 interceptions which shattered the record of 75 from Season 47. He also broke the record for most turnovers in a season with 92. That's one way to leave your mark. Hobo has had some struggles early in his MOF career, no doubt about it. He's only won 2 games in his 23 game career, but I think things will change a bit here in Seattle. He is starting from day 1 in a new edition, and has a very good team behind him. I still think he's a ways away from competing in this division, but I see drastic improvements for Hobo and these Seahawks. Russell Wilson might have to be dealt with the cap situation they are dealing with, but all in all the Seahawks have a good squad.
