Super Bowl week is here and predictions are starting to come out from just about everywhere. I’ll have my prediction in a couple days, but in the mean time, here’s something else to chew on. EA Sports has released their official Madden 13 prediction in form of the awesome video below.

Before you scoff at the idea of a video game as prediction tool, you should know that Madden has successfully predicted 7 of the last 9 Super Bowls correctly.

"The EA SPORTS Madden NFL Super Bowl Prediction continues to be one of the most accurate prognosticators of the NFL’s biggest game. The prediction has accurately called seven of the last nine Super Bowls, and was two points away from predicting the exact final score of the 2009 matchup between the Steelers and Cardinals. – Operation Sports"

Seeing Ray Lewis come unblocked for a sack definitely made me smile.
