The EA Sports Madden NFL series is the king of American football, but is it the king of simulating live events of football as well? Considering that six of the last seven Super Bowl simulations have been accurately picked by Madden NFL, you’d likely be making a mistake if you bet against it. Seeing as how the Super Bowl is this coming Sunday, EA Sports has treated us with another year of predictions for the upcoming game, but will they be correct yet again?

The latest simulation has chosen the Pittsburgh Steelers for winning the championship this Sunday over the Green Bay Packers. The final score according to Madden NFL 11 is 24-20. Below are the correct simulations that have occurred in the past for EA Sports.

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
