Everyone is trying to predict the final score of Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. A manatee has predicted it. A gorilla predicted it. Experts and fans are trying to predict it. Well, as reported by Bleacher Report on Jan. 31, 2014, an episode of "The Simpsons" actually predicted the final score of the game way back in 2005.

UPDATE: The show's official Twitter account did tweet out the image first, but it appears as if the game player in the episode wasn't the Super Bowl, but a regular season game between the two teams.

Currently, the Las Vegas spread for the game has the Broncos as a 2.5-point favorite. If "The Simpsons" are correct though, that won't end up being the case.

In an episode titled "Bonfire of the Manatees" that aired back in 2005, Homer was watching the Super Bowl and it actually had the Denver Broncos facing off with the Seattle Seahawks.

When all was said and done, the Broncos had won the game by a score of 19-14.

Now, that was nine years ago and it was just an episode of a cartoon on one of the longest running television series in history. That can't possibly have any relevance or affect on future events such as the Super Bowl, right?

Either way, it will be interesting to see if "The Simpsons" was able to do the impossible yet again.
