With the power of Microsoft’s Bing search engine, Cortana is able to make weekly predictions about NFL games, amongst many other competitions. For Week 14 of this NFL season, Cortana was only able to correctly predict 9 of 16 games, a lowly performance when compared with weeks prior. Injuries (including Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton leaving the game early with a broken thumb) and other unexpected upsets (did anyone see the Raiders beating the Broncos?) didn’t bode to well for the Windows Virtual Assistant. However Cortana did correctly pick winning teams that most had pegged as losses, including the Cleveland Browns over the San Francisco 49ers. This puts its record at 131-77 for the year, with a 63% accuracy rate.
For week 15, Cortana is giving a slight edge to the Indianapolis Colts over the visiting Texans with the division on the line, and has the Broncos taking a lost to the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Check below for a Cortana’s picks for Week 15:
