Look to the Steelers to takes the Super Bowl, according to an Electronic Arts simulation of the NFL championship game set for Sunday in Detroit.

The EA version of the game, played on an Xbox 360 version of Madden NFL 06, saw the Steelers defeat the Seattle Seahawks 24-19. The Pittsburgh defence limited NFL MVP Shaun Alexander to just 70 yards rushing in the game and sacked Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck four times.

Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, playing in his hometown, won MVP honours by scoring two touchdowns to go along with 41 yards rushing.

Bettis opened the scoring on a one-yard plunge late in the first quarter to cap a 10-play, 74-yard drive. The teams exchanged field goals in the second quarter, before Pittsburgh took advantage of an Alexander fumble on the Seattle 24-yard-line. Three plays later, Willie Parker scored on a seven-yard run off right tackle and the Steelers led 17-3.

Seattle made it 17-6 with a third-quarter field goal and reduced the deficit to 17-13 early in the fourth quarter when Alexander finished a seven-play, 66-yard drive early with a short dive off the left side.

Pittsburgh responded with a lengthy march, taking more than six minutes off the clock by going 73 yards in 13 plays - 11 of them runs - to go ahead 24-13 on a one-yard Bettis run.

With time running out, Hasselbeck hit Darrell Jackson on a 19-yard TD pass, but the ensuing two-point conversion failed, and an onside kick was recovered by the Steelers, who ran out the clock.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 19 of 28 passes for 173 yards in the simulation while Steelers linebacker Joey Porter recorded seven tackles and two sacks.

Hasselbeck completed 21 of 29 passes for 220 yards while Jackson had 91 receiving yards.

In real life, Pittsburgh is a four-point favourite, according to Las Vegas oddsmaker Harrah's.

I like the outcome but I believe the game is missing a touchdown pass to Hines and one to Miller!! We are going LARGE to this game!

Well, I played a friend of mine last night and he was the Seahawks. I lost by a couple TD's while Alexander ran for 265 yards on me. Jones and Hutchinson DOMINATED the left side and Foote went out early with an injury.

Not that it means anything, but what is EA's record for simulted vs real outcomes?

Madden simulations are all based off of team and player attributes from the previous season. Hence why a Heath Miller TD is unlikely. I'm pretty sure Miller's ratings will increase significantly come Madden 07.

All I know is they predicted a Raider victory in the Tampa/Oakland SB.

And in my game, the Steelers were down at half so I "helped" them out. In the end, Steelers won 108-10

But when I did actually let the whole thing run the Seahawks kept winning... 26-17 once, 17-3 in another.

LOL I figured I would take heat for that. I honestly don't believe what happens in a computer simulated football game will have any effect on the outcome of a game. I'd say that if EA was saying the Hawks were winners.

However, I do have some looky-loo part of me that is curious about how lucky the past simulations have been. I figure not so good, because they would have said something like "EA's simulations have accurately predicted the winner of the superbowl 5 out of 6 times or something like that."

I actually like to consider myself to be pretty good at Madden, and my friend is too. We try to play real NFL style football with no cheese. I just couldn't stop his running game last night. The Seahawks O-Line was killing me all game long, no matter what formation I was in. It was getting to be pretty frustrating.

The game started as the steelers kicked off to the seahawks. Each team punted twice and then Three Pittsburgh Interceptions gave them a lead of 10-0 mid way in the second. The steelers then scored another touchdown and a field goal to make it 20-0 Steelers.

In the third quarter the steelers only had punts but, Seattle scored a touchdown early in the quarter and then a FG late in the third to make it 20-10 Pittsburgh.
