No, this is not news, but you don't have to wait for the season to even start to know how it ends. That is the fun of computer simulations, if you find those sorts of things entertaining.

Paul Bessire, a friend of the Daily News, at Whatifsports.com, has run the NFL season for FoxSports.com and has the Eagles beating the Patriots, 34-31, in the Super Bowl in Miami.

The site had the Eagles play the Patriots 1,000 times, with the Eagles winning 57 percent of the games with an average score of 33-30.

Among the interesting tidbits drawn from the box score of the simulated Super Bowl are touchdowns for rookies LeSean McCoy and Cornelius Ingram and two for Brian Westbrook. The Eagles' defense holds the Patriots to only seven points in the second half and David Akers wins the game with a 26-yard field in the final two minutes.

Tom Brady is named the game's MVP in a losing effort.

Whatisports also predicts the Eagles to easily win the NFC East with a 12-4 record, three games better than the Cowboys.
