Looks like Ray Lewisí storied career will get a storybook ending after all.
EA Sports just released its annual Super Bowl simulation, and itís great news for the legendary linebacker. According to Madden NFL '13, the Baltimore Ravens will edge out the San Francisco 49ers by a mere field goal, winning the Lombardi Trophy, 27 - 24.
The Big Gameís a real nailbiter, too. Down 24 - 10 heading into the fourth quarter, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick rallied his team back into contention with two TDs to tie up the game. But with only two minutes left in regulation, the Ravens marched back into field goal range on the strength of running back Ray Rice, setting up a 40-yarder by Justin Tucker to put Baltimore ahead by three.
The Madden simulation apparently appreciates drama, however, as Kaepernick nearly orchestrated a miracle comeback. Unfortunately for San Francisco, the potential game winning TD pass wound up in the hands of Ravens safety Ed Reed, bringing Baltimore its second Super Bowl win (and bringing Ravens QB Joe Flacco his first Super Bowl MVP award). Check out the game's final moments in the above video.
