Madden Simulation was right! Giants win Super Bowl XLVI

The Madden NFL 12 Super Bowl XLVI simulation has proven to be quite prophetic as the New York Giants have defeated the New England Patriots in a thrilling 21-17 win.

EA’s Super Simulation listed the Giants as a 27-24 victor thanks to a last minute field goal. And while it didn’t play out exactly like that, several of EA’s predictions did come true including touchdowns from Victor Cruz and Ahmad Bradshaw. Eli Manning was named the Super Bowl MVP, also just like in the simulation.

After fumbling last year’s Super Bowl winner, this is a welcome return to form for EA’s simulation. In the last nine years, the Madden series has predicted the winner seven times. I guess after picking New England in the first Patriots-Giants Super Bowl (which the Giants also won), the Madden simulation engine learned its lesson.
