Madden NFL 11: Steelers win Super Bowl XLV

These days the videogame industry is amongst some of the biggest moneymaking industries in the world today. Along with cashing in with first-person shooter games like Call of Duty: Black Ops, videogame industries also extremely profitable sports franchises with games like FIFA 11 (international soccer), NBA 2K11 (basketball) and Madden 11 (football).

The FIFA franchise is arguably the most popular as it is international and soccer being the most popular sport in the world, but a close second is the Madden franchise which is so popular that no other football game comes close to competing with it every single year.

So as it’s done every year, a simulated game is played between the two Super Bowl teams. This year obviously it is the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but even though the Packers may be favored in the point spread, the Steelers won the simulated game 24-20.

Ironically enough, the over/under for this game is 44 points, which is exactly the score of this Madden 11 simulated Super Bowl between the Packers and the Steelers.

In my opinion, Super Bowl XLV will be an extremely close football game from start to finish as these two lockdown defense is will be battling it out to contain the likes of two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and perennial Pro Bowler Aaron Rodgers.

Interestingly enough, even though many people won’t put much stock into a simulated game played in Madden NFL 11, the extremely popular NFL do game has predicted six out of last seven Super Bowl winners. That’s better than most oddsmakers and predictions made by NFL analysts.

Personally, I believe Green Bay Packers will cement themselves as arguably one of best teams in the NFL by beating Big Ben and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Super Bowl Sunday, but I do believe it will be an extremely close match dictated by whichever team plays better on the defensive side of the football.

The two players to watch out for both teams in the Super Bowl showdown are the two finalists for the defensive player of the year warned this season in the Packers’ Clay Matthews and the Steeler’s Troy Polamalu.

Polamalu may have beaten out Matthews in the voting for the defensive player of the year by just two votes, but both former USC Trojans are amongst the best at their positions and will be looking to put on a show on the NFL’s biggest stage at Cowboys Stadium. Even though the defense will be put on a pedestal heading into this showdown between the Steelers and the Packers, I believe the offense will go overlooked and could be the x-factor in this game.

So players like Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson, James Harrison and Troy Polamalu might be put in the spotlight on Super Bowl Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger shouldn’t be underestimated as they are the undisputed leaders of these teams.
