Bing Predicts goes 9-7 in Week 14, now 131-77 for the year

Our latest predicted playoff positioning has New England still in 1st place with Denver 2nd as our models still have Denver beating Cincinnati in Week 16. Green Bay, holding a one game lead, could lose games in both Weeks 15 and 16 but beat Minnesota in Week 17 to clinch their division, due to what would result in a head-to-head season sweep for the first tiebreaker. More details on the playoff scenarios follow our Week 15 predictions and Week 14...
