Okay, so the Steelers and that Wisconsin team are playing a big football game today. People love talking about who will win, even going so far as to run simulations in the current version of Madden. But what if these two teams were facing off back in the golden age of video game football?

I'll be honest: I don't play a lot of sports games...but that wasn't always the case. I used to play hour after hour of Tecmo Super Bowl on NES, and as a result, the entirety of my football knowledge is based on rosters and statistics that are two decades old . In my world, the Dallas Cowboys are always the best team, and the New England Patriots are always the worst.

So, I have no idea who will win today's game. I don't know anything about these teams. But according to my outdated, early-'90s recollection, I'm pretty sure that the Steelers would win if they were playing the Packers in Tecmo Super Bowl.

What do you think? Here's the topic of discussion: Steelers versus Packers in Tecmo Super Bowl. Who emerges victorious?

EDIT: As some people are pointing out in the comments, Tosh.O did a feature pitting the two teams against each other in Tecmo Super Bowl, which you can see here.

(If you want some hard data to base your choice on, I highly recommend Paul Schulzetenberg's detailed Tecmo Super Bowl FAQ)
