After success with the World Cup, Cortana tries her hand with the NFL

After success with the World Cup, Cortana  tries her hand with the NFL
After scoring a tremendous 15-1 record predicting winners in the knockout round of the World Cup, Cortana moves on to the NFL. Starting with tonight's regular season game between the Green Bay Packers and the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, Cortana will pick the winner of NFL contests. All you need to do is ask the personal assistant, "Who will win Team A or Team B?"

Cortana uses an algorithm that is based on a number of factors including home field advantage (huge for Seattle) and roster strengths and weaknesses. Unfortunately for those who take betting on football seriously, the virtual voice activated personal assistant doesn't make her picks with the point spread in mind. 

As for tonight's game, Cortana is going with the defending champs to get their 2014-2015 campaign off to a good start.
