EA SPORTS and Madden 12 have done it again. Not only did the Super Bowl XLVI simulation correctly predict a Giants victory and Eli Manning walking away as MVP, it also proved amazingly accurate on individual player stats. Though certain aspects of the broadcast proved to be outside the realm of our predictions – such as Welker’s butter-fingers, the popularity of a dog named Weego and M.I.A.’s one-finger salute to the camera – we knew that Tuck would get two sacks, Tynes would hit two field goals and Green-Ellis would be held to less than 50 yards. Our other stat predictions were:

· Final Score

o Actual score: Giants 21, Patriots 17

o Sim score: Giants 27, Patriots 24

· Manning

o Actual: 30/40 for 296 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT (MVP)

o Sim: 25/39 for 342 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT (MVP)

· Brady

o Actual: 27/41 for 276 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT

o Sim: 28/42 for 327 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT

· Bradshaw

o Actual: 17 for 72 yards, 1 TD

o Sim: 21 for 82 yards, 1 TD

· Green-Ellis

o Actual: 10 for 44 yards, 0 TD

o Sim: 13 for 41 yards, 0 TD

· Tynes

o Actual: 2/2

o Sim: 2/2

· Gostokowsi

o Actual: 1/1

o Sim: 1/1

· Tuck

o Actual: 2 sacks

o Sim: 2 sacks



Dating back to Super Bowl XXXVIII, EA SPORTS has conducted the annual Super Bowl simulation using the latest iteration of the Madden NFL franchise. The Super Bowl XLVI simulation was conducted utilizing artificial intelligence powered by real-life data from each team to determine player ratings, and includes variances, such as injuries, to predict the outcome. Six out of the last eight Super Bowl champions have been accurately predicted by Madden NFL. Previous results include:

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
