Tecmo Bowl Predicts Super Bowl XLVII Outcome
Video games – is there anything they can’t do?
Thanks to a near-perfect day from Colin Kaepernick, two costly turnovers from Joe Flacco and an interesting late-game decision, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 31-17 in the Tecmo Bowl version of Super BowlXLVII. The simulation straight out of the late 1980s and early 1990s had KaepernickoutduelingFlacco on the biggest stage. Kaepernick completed 88 percent of his passes for 252 yards and two touchdowns, plus one rushing score that all but finished off Baltimore late in the fourth quarter. If Tecmo Bowl had picked an MVP, Kaepernick would have been the easy choice.
