Giants top Patriots in 'Madden' sim of Super Bowl

Mon, Jan 30

EA Sports has been on a roll of late predicting NFL winners.

Not only did they predict a Giants versus Patriots Super Bowl in the Conference Championship simulations just a couple of weeks ago, but they came within a few points of actually simulating the exact score of the New York/San Francisco game (sim: 23-19, real: 20-17).

Utilizing the "Madden" engine, EA Sports has also managed to correctly predict six of the last eight Super Bowl winners, including these impressive results:

  • Super Bowl XXXVIII: Patriots 23, Panthers 20 (Actual Score: Patriots 32, Panthers 29)
  • Super Bowl XXXIX: Patriots 47, Eagles 31 (Actual score: Patriots 24, Eagles 21)
  • Super Bowl XL: Steelers 24, Seahawks 19 (Actual score: Steelers 21, Seahawks 10)
  • Super Bowl XLI: Colts 38, Bears 27 (Actual score: Colts 29, Bears 17)
  • Super Bowl XLIII : Steelers 28, Cardinals 24 (Actual score: Steelers 27, Cardinals 23)
  • Super Bowl XLIV: Saints 35, Colts 31 (Actual score: Saints 31, Colts 17)

    So what does the game's Artificial Intelligence predict will happen in Super Bowl XLVI? Looks like the G-Men are about to pull off another upset.
