Madden NFL 13 predicts Ravens as Super Bowl champs

I guess there’s no use in actually playing the game now.

EA Sports announced on Monday that its Super Bowl simulation on the Xbox 360 version of Madden NFL 13 resulted in the Baltimore Ravens defeating the San Francisco 49ers 27-24. Baltimore led by 14 in the third quarter after a Joe Flacco touchdown pass, but the 49ers came storming back and had a chance to win the game in the final minute.

However, Baltimore safety Ed Reed came up with an interception to secure the win for the Ravens. Flacco won MVP honors by throwing for 260 yards and two touchdowns, and the Vince Lombardi Trophy returned to Baltimore for the first time since the turn of the century.

Now that we know what’s going to happen, we can focus more fully on enjoying those hilarious commercials this Sunday. Thanks, EA.
