That Madden 13 Super Bowl prediction was eerily accurate

The simulation had The Ravens win by three points

It looks like my bird magic worked, as the Baltimore Ravens overtook the San Francisco 49ers last night in a huge Super Bowl victory, bringing the franchise up to two championship wins.

Of course, Madden 13 already knew this would happen. And surprisingly...it was strangely accurate. Not only did Madden predict a three point win for The Ravens, but it also correctly anticipated Anquan Boldin and Frank Gore touchdowns, a sole Ed reed interception, and was almost spot on with the stats for both quarterbacks, Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick -- including an MVP win for Flacco. Wow!

The Ravens had that "New York Giants" hungry feel to them this year, and they ended up taking everyone (even myself) by surprise with playoffs wins over some of the best teams in the league. By the end, it was clear they had a shot. We'll see if Madden is this accurate next year!
