Saints-Colts: A Tecmo Super Bowl Simulation, Complete With Updated Rosters

If you're not familiar with Knobbe.org, it's the self-described "largest Tecmo Super Bowl community" on the Internet. Among other things, they essentially re-program the classic 1991 Nintendo game so that it includes new rosters. In other words, yes -- you get to see players like Peyton Manning and Reggie Bush in 8-bit glory. Best of all, they let you download everything you need to play it on your computer, for free.

Anyway. They've simulated Super Bowl XLIV between the Saints and Colts, recorded it, and slapped it on YouTube. Check out the short version. If Tecmo Super Bowl is right, folks, then we will be treated to our first overtime Super Bowl ever:

You can watch the full version here. Remarkably, the Saints win, 34-31, which is the exact score I'm predicting. If this score is right, I'm throwing Madden 10 in the garbage and playing Tecmo Super Bowl for the rest of my days.
