NEW YORK - Without a flying DeLorean, but with all of the confidence of someone who has seen the future, EA Sports is predicting the Broncos will win the Super Bowl.
The prediction, based on a Madden NFL 25 football video game simulation, has the Broncos defeating the Seahawks 31-28. In addition to predicting Peyton Manning will be the first quarterback to ever lead two different teams to victories in the big game, EA is also predicting this will be the first Super Bowl to ever go into overtime.
EA Sports boasts that Madden NFL has been used to correctly forecast eight of the 10 past winners, including Baltimore's victory in the Super Bowl last year.
The company is so confident in the prediction that their press release includes a description of the story in the past tense.
