EA's Prediction Shockingly Accurate

This is scary: EA's prediction for the Super Bowl -- which was made last week -- proved shockingly accurate. The company used Madden NFL 09 to predict the game and called it Steelers 28, Cardinals 24. The actual score: Steelers 27, Cards 23. One point off for each team is much better than Vegas did in predicting the game.

As far as the specifics: EA predicted Ben Roethlisberger would throw the ball 28 times for 238 yards and complete 21 of those 28 passes. In the actual game, he completed 21 of 30 passes for 256 yards. Madden projected that Steelers wide receiver Santonio Holmes would make eight catches for 131 yards. In the real game, he made nine catches for 131 yards.

No computer program ever devised could have predicted James Harrison, the Steelers' right outside linebacker, making the longest run in Super Bowl history by galloping across the field for 100 yards, though.

A special note to TheFeed readers who predicted the game in our comments section: You all got it wrong. Some of you came close, but close only counts in hand grenades, so no one will get a hearty congratulation and "Word Up!" from us.
