Each week throughout the 2023 NFL season, the supercomputer has something to say about every game. No matter if it’s a headliner like Cowboys-Bills or the latest matchup complicated by backup quarterbacks – Vikings-Bengals – it unsentimentally beeps its way through the model’s NFL picks.

Week 15 kicks off Thursday in the AFC West with the Raiders hosting the Chargers. It ends in the NFC with the Eagles visiting the Seahawks on Monday Night Football. For those games and everything between, we’ve taken plenty of data and pumped it through our predictive model. Keep in mind that these percentages move throughout the week as player news shakes things up. You can always find the win percentages – pregame or live – on our season-long predictions page.

It’s mid-December, which means Saturday NFL. The first of three games features the Vikings’ trip to Cincinnati. The Bengals’ season looked to be over when Joe Burrow went down with a torn ligament in his right wrist, but Jake Browning has impressed so far. In fact, his 79.3 completion percentage is the highest through three career starts by any quarterback in the Super Bowl era. Decent for someone who a matter of weeks ago was still a 27-year-old undrafted afterthought. Meanwhile the Vikings – Browning’s first NFL team – will be starting their fourth different QB of the season as Nick Mullens takes the helm. And with Browning leading the way, we give the Bengals a 60.9% chance of winning to get to 8-6:

The Steelers have dominated the all-time series with the Colts. Including the playoffs, Pittsburgh is 26-6 all-time in their meetings. That’s the best record by a team in a current matchup with at least 30 games played. But we think that might start to change on Saturday as our win projections give Indy an edge at 57.5%. That would mark three straight losses for the Steelers and drop them to 7-7, making the thought of their first losing season since 2003 a very realistic possibility with games against the Bengals, Seahawks and Ravens to come:

New Jersey’s finest Tommy Devito has been a revelation for the Giants as he has thrown seven touchdowns in his four starts compared to Daniel Jones’ two in his six starts for New York this season. Unfortunately for Devito, he won’t have his home cooking this weekend as he and the Giants travel to the Big Easy, where the Saints have a win probability of 67.4% to get to 7-7 in the NFL’s most up-for-grabs division:

CeeDee Lamb needs four catches to become the first Cowboys player to ever have 100 receptions in consecutive seasons. Our fantasy projections think Lamb will produce against the Bills, predicting him to have the most fantasy points of any wide receiver in Week 15. But despite Lamb’s production with MVP hopeful Dak Prescott, the supercomputer has the Bills as home favorites with a projected win percentage of 58.5%:

Monday Night Football features two teams in need of a victory. The Eagles have lost consecutive games by 20 points after their 33-13 loss in Dallas last week. They’re headed to Seattle to take on the Seahawks, whose four-game losing streak is the longest of Pete Carroll’s tenure there. Make it five – we think Philly will get back on track with 57.5% confidence:
