Madden Predicts 2012 Superbowl Champion

For the past eight years, the Madden video game has been trying to predict the Superbowl outcome. It’s been right six out of the eight times. That’s a pretty impressive record. Will it be right again this year?

The outcome of this years simulation has the Giants beating the Patriots with a game winning field goal, bringing the final score to 27-24.

Here’s the video with the highlights of the simulation:

I’m on board with Madden this year. I think the Giants are the better team and the score of 27-24 sounds more than believable. It’d also be fitting for the Patriots to lose a Superbowl in the same way they’ve won so many; by a field goal.

Here’s a list of Madden’s previous predictions and the outcomes: Thanks to Ben Silverman of Yahoo! for the nice list!
