Steelers Top Pack, 24-20, in Madden Simulation
The simulation has correctly predicted six of the last seven Super Bowl victors
LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 14: President of Electronic Arts Sports (EA Sports) Peter Moore introduces the new Madden 2011 football game at an EA press briefing ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) at the Orpheum Theater June 14, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will win Super Bowl XLV over the Green Bay Packers (according to some dudes who make video games).
Electronic Arts has unveiled their annual Super Bowl prediction, which is based on a simulation of the actual game on the current “Madden” game, and, this year, the Steelers topped the Packers 24-20, to win the big game.
The Steelers’ digital win was sealed by a late interception from the hand of Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace was the game’s MVP, with five catches 111 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
The simulation has correctly predicted the winner in six of the last seven Super Bowls, including last year’s. Madden’s only miss came three years ago, when the New York Giants shocked the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
