Super Bowl 47 is only two days away and all the simulations by our fantasy football software analyzer program have been run, re-run, and re-run. So what does our computerized system predict? Here are the stat breakdowns for most of the important offensive players:

San Francisco 49ers:

Colin Kaepernick: 17-28; 240 pass yards, 1-2 pass TD's, 1 int; 50 rush yards, low chance for a rush TD

Frank Gore: 16 rush attempts, 68 rush yards, 0-1 rush TD's, 1-2 receptions, 20 receive yards

LaMichael James: 5-6 rush attempts, 28 rush yards; 1 reception, 7 receive yards

Michael Crabtree: 7 receptions, 100 receive yards, 1 TD

Randy Moss: 2 receptions, 36 yards very low TD chance

Vernon Davis: 2 receptions, 35 yards, very low TD chance

Delanie Walker: 2 receptions, 32 yards, low TD chance

David Akers: 1-2 FG's, 2-3 PAT's

Defense: 1-2 sacks, 1 fumble recovery

Baltimore Ravens:

Joe Flacco: 20-33; 285 pass yards, 3 TD's, 0 int's; 3 rushes, 2 yards

Ray Rice: 16 rush attempts, 66 rush yards; 0-1 rush TD's; 3 receptions, 24 receive yards, low receive TD chance

Bernard Pierce: 8 rush attempts, 43 rush yards

Torrey Smith: 3 receptions, 53 yards, 0-1 TD's

Anquan Boldin: 4-5 receptions, 76 yards, 1 TD

Jacoby Jones: 2 receptions, 32 yards, very low TD chance

Dennis Pitta: 4-5 receptions, 59 yards, 1 TD

Ed Dickson: 2 receptions, 22 yards

Justin Tucker: 1 FG, 3-4 PAT's

Defense: 1-2 sacks, 1 interception

What stands out to me in these numbers is the lack of defensive stats. I expected more with these two team's reputations. But the software doesn't care about reputation; it only cares about the numbers each team puts up and allows. And based on this, it appears that my own preseason Super Bowl winner prediction of the Baltimore Ravens is going to come thru. Joe Flacco's amazing run in the playoffs will continue and with these numbers, he'd very likely be the Super Bowl MVP. Ray Lewis sails off into retirement with a second NFL championship.

Analyzer Prediction: Baltimore 30, San Francisco 24
