Week 9 was a good week for the prognosticators at Bing Predicts. They called 10 out of 13 games correctly, with one loss coming as a direct result of Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate having an out-of-body experience on his game-winning touchdown in overtime of the team’s 22-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Never ones to celebrate too long after a job well done, the focus now turns to Week 10.

PointAfter, a sports data site powered by Graphiq, used the latest data from Bing Predicts to call all 14 games in Week 10. Bing Predicts uses web activity and social sentiment — in addition to historical player, team and match stats — to predict the outcome of NFL games. Web and social data allow Bing Predicts to capture real-time information about lineup changes and reaction to them to tune the strengths of teams.

The winless Cleveland Browns hit the road to face the Baltimore Ravens in this week’s Thursday night game. The week’s biggest matchup comes on Sunday night when the Seattle Seahawks play the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Like always, we’ll go from the most competitive game to the biggest blowout and break down each matchup along the way.

#1. Green Bay Packers (4-4) @ Tennessee Titans (4-5)

Aaron Rodgers

Bing Predicts winner: Packers (53 percent)

Opening line: GB -1
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

Both the Packers and Titans are coming off tough Week 9 losses, though it’s Green Bay who’s probably feeling more desperate heading into the second half of the season. The Packers have lost three of their last four and have three straight road games against the Titans, Redskins and Eagles coming up. Their running back situation is a mess, and their passing game has lacked explosiveness, as Aaron Rodgers ranks 29th in the league in yards per pass attempt.

Marcus Mariota, meanwhile, has taken a step forward in his sophomore season. He has posted a 95.0 passer rating or better in four of his last five games and is averaging 6.7 yards per rush. Tennessee’s defense, though, ranks 22nd in points allowed per game (25.1) and 17th in opponents’ passer rating (92.6), so Bing Predicts slightly favors Rodgers’ chances of getting the offense going on the road.

#2. Minnesota Vikings (5-3) @ Washington Redskins (4-3-1)

Kirk Cousins

Bing Predicts winner: Redskins (53 percent)

Opening line: WAS -2
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

Boy, that didn’t take long. After a surprising 5-0 start, the Vikings have quickly fallen right back down to Earth with three ugly losses in a row. In his first four games, Sam Bradford had a 70.4 percent completion rate and a 109.7 passer rating. Since then, he’s completed just 66.1 percent of his pass attempts with a 87.7 passer rating, averaging only 6.14 yards per attempt. The Vikings have averaged 12 points per game during this losing streak and 76 rushing yards, putting a lot of pressure on Minnesota’s stout defense.

Washington, meanwhile, is coming off a bye week following its 27-27 Week 8 tie with the Bengals in London. Rookie Robert Kelley is the team’s new feature back after his breakout 87-yard performance against Cincinnati, and the Redskins get the nod here based on their extra week’s rest and Minnesota’s three-game skid.

#3. Chicago Bears (2-6) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5)

Jameis Winston

Bing Predicts winner: Buccaneers (53 percent)

Opening line: TB -1
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

Both the Bears (-48) and Bucs (-52) are in the bottom three in the NFC in point differential, and Sunday’s matchup will feature a battle of weaknesses. Chicago ranks 31st in points per game (16.4), while Tampa Bay is 29th in points allowed per game (29.0).

The Bears are coming off a bye week, while the Bucs are still looking for their first home win of the season. Their last home win came on Dec. 6, 2015, but Bing Predicts goes with Tampa Bay here, partly because Chicago is winless on the road this season. Jameis Winston hasn’t had the breakout year many expected, as he ranks 25th in passer rating (85.4), though he is coming off a strong performance in last week’s loss to Atlanta. Winston completed 23 of 37 passes for 261 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, good for a 110.3 passer rating.

#4. Los Angeles Rams (3-5) @ New York Jets (3-6)

Case Keenum

Bing Predicts winner: Jets (53 percent)

Opening line: NYJ -2.5
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

The Rams’ offensive woes continued in last week’s 13-10 home loss to the Panthers, as Case Keenum posted his sixth sub-90.0 passer rating in eight games and threw his 11th interception, second-most in the league. The running game continues to be just as terrible, as Todd Gurley is the league’s only running back with at least 85 rushes and no runs of at least 20 yards.

The Jets are just as bad but get the slight edge here largely for two reasons — they’re playing at home, and they allow only 3.5 yards per rush attempt, fourth-best in the league. With no running game to lean on, it’s hard to imagine Keenum being able to score enough points to put the Rams in position to win.

#5. Cincinnati Bengals (3-4-1) @ New York Giants (5-3)

Odell Beckham Jr.

Bing Predicts winner: Giants (53 percent)

Opening line: NYG -2
Kickoff time: 8:30 PM (Monday)

The Giants have won three straight, including last week’s 28-23 win over the Eagles. Odell Beckham Jr. has cooled off a bit since his 222-yard outburst against Baltimore in Week 6, totaling just 95 yards in his last two games. Expect him to pick things up against the Bengals, who have allowed an opponents’ passer rating of 96.8, which ranks 23rd in the league.

#6. Miami Dolphins (4-4) @ San Diego Chargers (4-5)

Jay Ajayi

Bing Predicts winner: Chargers (57 percent)

Opening line: SD -3.5
Kickoff time: 4:05 PM ET

In a brutal AFC West, the Chargers are quietly hanging around in the playoff race. They’ve won three of their past four after last week’s 43-35 win over Tennessee, led by Melvin Gordon’s 196-yard outburst. San Diego is third in the league in scoring (29.8 points per game), and Philip Rivers ranks 10th in passer rating (96.2).

Miami is also enjoying an under-the-radar surge, riding a three-game winning streak. This is largley thanks to an out-of-nowhere hot streak by running bay Jay Ajayi, who’s rushed for 529 yards and four touchdowns during that time. The Dolphins have played four straight home games and have not played on the road since Sept. 29. Going back to last season, Miami has lost five consecutive road games, and are likely to make it five straight this week in San Diego.

#7. Houston Texans (5-3) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (2-6)

Brock Osweiler

Bing Predicts winner: Texans (58 percent)

Opening line: PK
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

The Jaguars are tied for the second-worst point differential (-62) in the AFC, yet somehow their game with the first-place Texans is a pick’em. Houston has alternated wins and losses the last six weeks but is coming off a bye, and Bing Predicts likes the Texans to avoid what would be an embarrassing inter-divisional loss.

#8. Kansas City Chiefs (6-2) @ Carolina Panthers (3-5)

Cam Newton

Bing Predicts winner: Panthers (60 percent)

Opening line: CAR -2.5
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

Carolina came away with an ugly win at Los Angeles last week, but its offense did not have a fun day. The Panthers had 244 total yards and averaged a brutal 3.94 yards per play, as Cam Newton got sacked five times.

The Chiefs have won four straight games — including the last two with Nick Foles as their leading passer — but should get Alex Smith back this week. If Smith is rusty, don’t expect Kansas City’s running game to be able to bail him out — the Panthers allow a league-best 3.3 yards per carry, while Kansas City is 22nd in yards per rush (4.0).

#9. Dallas Cowboys (7-1) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (4-4)

Dak Prescott

Bing Predicts winner: Steelers (61 percent)

Opening line: PIT -3
Kickoff time: 4:25 PM ET

The Cowboys train just keeps on rolling, as Dallas easily handled Cleveland in Week 9 for its seventh straight win. The Cowboys lead the league in rushing yards per game (165.3), and Dak Prescott is fourth in passer rating (104.2).

Up next is a road tilt with the Steelers, who have dropped three straight and looked lifeless in last week’s 21-14 loss to the Ravens. Ben Roethlisberger returned from a knee injury and posted a 67.3 passer rating by completing just 51.1 percent of his throws, and the team ran for just 36 yards on 18 carries. Bing Predicts is banking on Big Ben shaking off the rust and the Cowboys finally having an off day.

#10. Denver Broncos (6-3) @ New Orleans Saints (4-4)

Drew Brees

Bing Predicts winner: Saints (61 percent)

Opening line: NOR -1
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

The Broncos are coming off a 30-20 loss to the Raiders in which the offense struggled to keep up. Denver had just 299 total yards and had two turnovers as the team struggled to run the ball effectively. In his last four games, Trevor Siemian has completed just 54.7 percent of his passes with a 77.2 passer rating. The Saints have won four of their past five and have averaged 32.6 points per game during that run.

#11. Atlanta Falcons (6-3) @ Philadelphia Eagles (4-4)

Fletcher Cow

Bing Predicts winner: Eagles (63 percent)

Opening line: PK
Kickoff time: 1:00 PM ET

Atlanta’s league-best scoring offense (33.9 points per game) got back on track over the last two weeks in wins over the Packers and Bucs. Matt Ryan has a 119.0 passer rating — second-best in the league — and has posted a passer rating over 100 in seven of nine games this season.

Bing Predicts likes the Eagles, though, despite Philadelphia losing four of its last five games. Philadelphia has one of the few true home-field advantages in the NFL, and the Eagles are sixth in points allowed per game (18.1) and yards allowed per game (325.5).

#12. Seattle Seahawks (5-2-1) @ New England Patriots (7-1)

Tom Brady

Bing Predicts winner: Patriots (64 percent)

Opening line: NE -6.5
Kickoff time: 8:30 PM ET

After duking it out with the Bills on Monday night, the Seahawks now have to fly cross country to play the Patriots in what will be an uphill battle. Tom Brady has been on a tear since returning from his suspension but will face a tough test against Seattle’s defense, which ranks third in points allowed per game (16.8). Russell Wilson is coming off his best game of the season against the Bills, in which he posted a 137.0 passer rating and completed 20 of 26 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns.

#13. Cleveland Browns (0-9) @ Baltimore Ravens (4-4)

Joe Flacco

Bing Predicts winner: Ravens (67 percent)

Opening line: BAL -8
Kickoff time: 8:25 PM ET (Thursday)

Thursday night games are always brutal, and this one should be no different. The Ravens are not a good football team, but even they deserve to be favored by more than a touchdown against the hapless Browns. It’s worth noting that Cleveland won its last meeting at Baltimore in Week 5 of 2015, in a 33-30 overtime victory.

#14. San Francisco 49ers (1-7) @ Arizona Cardinals (3-4-1)

David Johnson

Bing Predicts winner: Cardinals (79 percent)

Opening line: ARI -11.5
Kickoff time: 4:25 PM ET

The Cardinals are better than their 3-4-1 record, as their +39 point differential — fourth-best in the AFC — indicates. Arizona is coming off a bye week, while San Francisco has lost seven straight games since its season-opening win against the Rams. In last week’s 41-23 loss to the Saints, Colin Kaepernick looked like his old self, completing 24 of 39 passes for 398 yards and two touchdowns. That was good for a 102.3 passer rating, but don’t expect a repeat of that performance this week — the Cardinals have allowed an opponents’ passer rating of 69.1, second-best in the NFL.
