Super Bowl 2013: 49ers are Tecmo Bowl champions

Though it's not a scientific prediction, the San Francisco 49ers will beat the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII -- according to Tecmo Bowl, at least.

There's still over a week and a half until Super Bowl XLVII kicks off, when the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers to determine this year's NFL champions.

Many analysts and fans will predict the Super Bowl between now and Feb. 3 -- and programmers are even creating video game predictions. Thanks to the TecmoBowlers, Tecmo Bowl, perhaps the most beloved football video game ever, predicts a 49ers victory in Super Bowl XLVII.

Though the results are hardly scientific, it's certainly entertaining. Per Tecmo Bowl's prediction, the Ravens and Niners enter the fourth quarter tied at 17-17, but a Joe Flacco interception turns the tides, and the 49ers wind up winning Super Bowl XLVII, 31-17.

Undoubtedly, Patriots fans will be wondering where that Joe Flacco was during the AFC Championship game.

Kickoff between the 49ers and Ravens is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 3. Televised coverage can be found on CBS.
