Madden Simulation Says The Super Bowl Victor Is...
Want to know who's going to win the big game on Sunday? Look no further than the simulation played out in Madden 10.
It has become an annual tradition; the latest Madden iteration goes CPU vs. CPU with the two teams in the Super Bowl, and then we get the virtual prediction. Well, according to Joystiq, it's the New Orleans Saints who emerge victorious in a shootout with the Indianapolis Colts. EA fills us in on the end:
"...with minutes left in the game the duo of Joseph Addai and Peyton Manning put the Colts back on top with a go-ahead touchdown pass. With the game hanging in the balance, Drew Brees hits David Thomas for an 11-yard touchdown and the game winning score."
So in the end, the Saints squeak out a 35-31 victory and if you think this is all fun and games, you have to consider EA's recent simulation track record. This "simulation formula" has correctly predicted the winners of the conference championship games (within a three-point margin of error) and remember, last year's simulation between Pittsburgh and Arizona turned out right...almost exactly right, in fact. So who's laughing now? Personally, with Freeney not being 100% even if he plays, I'm going to say it's a toss-up. As far as I'm concerned, it may come down to whichever team has the ball last... Manning or Brees?
