Super Bowl XLIV - EA Predicts Super Bowl XLIV Winner With Madden

Post  Austin on Thu Feb 04, 2010 1:02 pm



Using a simulation game of Madden NFL 10, Electronic Arts has predicted that the New Orleans Saints will prevail over the Indianapolis Colts this coming Sunday at Super Bowl XLIV.

The Saints pulled the upset, defeating the favored Colts 35-31, with quarterback Drew Brees taking MVP honors for his heroic, list-minute touchdown throw to receiver David Thomas.

The first three quarters display the offensive fireworks that both teams have become known for, with the Colts leading 24-21. A nail biting fourth quarter begins with a big play, courtesy of the Saints' special teams, when Reggie Bush returns a punt for a 42-yard touchdown. However, 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 just how accurate is this prediction?

Using each team's up-to-date roster and statistics, Madden NFL 10 predicted the outcome of both the NFC and AFC Championship games within three points, and used the same simulation formula to predict last year's winner of Super Bowl XLIII down to the final score and individual player statistics.

Electronic Arts has accurately predicted the Super Bowl winner five out of the last six years since the company began simulating the big game in 2004.

I have to go with the Colts on this one. Manning is an assassin and with 2 weeks of prep he will be ready. i think the Saints will bring their A game but Manning is too much of a perfectionist to let the stage get to him.
+ many of the Colts were here a few years ago when they won, so I think they will be a more settled than the Saints. Either way it should be a high scoring and highly entertaining game.

I think you got your Mannings mixed up. The Manning you're talking about is Eli Manning cause Peyton Manning has thrown maybe 2 interceptions in the last 5 games he's played.

I see we're gettin all PC. No need to be politically correct here. It's all about who's at the helm of the team. It's a no brainer with Peyton Manning & Co. going for the win.
