The lights are on
EA Sports has used iterations of Madden to predict past Super Bowl winners, but we here in the GI offices think that out of all of them, this year's take on Sunday's game has the most realistic-sounding ring to it. At least we *** well hope so.
Madden NFL 11 had the Steelers beating the Packers 24-20 in a tight contest that came down to two crucial drives by both teams in the fourth quarter. The Packers took the lead 20-17 with nine minutes to go in the fourth quarter with an Aaron Rodgers pass to James Jones. After trading possessions for most of the fourth quarter, Steelers' QB Ben Roethlisberger hit Mike Wallace on a 36-yard TD toss with 1:20 to play. Aaron Rodgers tries to mount a comeback, but as he has done numerous times earlier in his career, a crucial interception on the ensuing drive seals the deal for the Steelers.
Check out the video footage of what hopefully might come to pass.

I will soon be in Dallas cheering on the Pack! The Steelers have won enough Superbowls - It's Green Bay's time for glory.
You big sillies. You're supposed to want the better team (the Packers) to win. That's how it works. Now repeat after me.....
Go Pack Go!!!!
i think that roethlisberger is gonna have to open another can of rape if he's gonna beat the pack
so im guessing the refs help out the Steelers again to win the super bowl? i mean, we all do remember what happened at Super Bowl XL when the refs won the game for Pittsburgh. like the "Tuck Game" when Tom Brady fumbled that ball to lose the AFC title game against the Raiders. here you have Green Bay, a team people dont want to see beat the Steelers including the refs, so they can see that team win its 7th title. so the steelers win with the refs help.
I really want the Packers to win but I wouldn't be very upset if the Steelers won.
My best friend got shipped to basic training last month and is a huge Pack fan so I'm going for them.
Plus they have a guy called Claymaker...come on how can you go against that!
You guys must be happy.
I don't know about this one though. The last round was easy to call, but I'm torn two ways here. Leaning Packers though I'll be pulling Steelers too.
Steelers are trash. Go Cowboys!
Go Packers. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
I want to cheer for the Steelers, since I live in Pittsurgh, but I really just stopped caring about football years ago.
You guys better pray Brett Favre doesn't decide to come back to "help" your Vikings again.
I think the Packers are going to win, but would not be at all suprised to see the Steelers win.
Sau-sage. Cheese-heads. Da Pack Da Pack Da Pack
the steeler's can go jump on it. it should be the ravens getting ready for the super bowl.
Its obvious the steelers are going to win regardless!
