Super Bowl Predictions: Madden 2012 Simulation Has Giants Edging Patriots, 27-24

The EA Sports video game, Madden 2012, has predicted the winner of Super Bowl 2012 after a simulation was played and posted on YouTube. According to the popular game, the New York Giants will edge the New England Patriots, 27-24, in the Super Bowl.

The Giants will defeat the Patriots for the second time in five years in the NFL's biggest game on a time-expiring field goal by kicker Lawrence Tynes. The kick was made after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady connects with wide receiver Wes Welker on a touchdown that ties the game with 1:50 remaining.

The Patriots game-tying touchdown was setup by a late-fourth quarter interception thrown by Giants' quarterback Eli Manning.
