Cortana now predicts outcomes of NFL match-ups

Earlier this summer, we enabled the ability for Cortana to predict the outcomes of soccer matches from Brazil through the magic of Bing. Cortana ended up predicting a near perfect bracket in the knockout rounds. Now, Bing is shifting gears for their prediction technology to American football – just in time for the start of the 2014 football season tomorrow. Bing will now predict the results of NFL match-ups. And we’re enabling this prediction behavior in Cortana. All you need to do is ask Cortana “Who will win Team A or Team B?” and she will provide an answer. If your device is running Windows Phone 8.1 – give it a shot!
