Patriots rooting guide

1:00 PM ET

Saints at Dolphins: Go Saints, easy one.

Jaguars at Jets: Go Jets, screw up your draft ranking, another easy one.

Titans at Texans: Are both of these teams actually really good? Patriots should root for the Texans for the sake of strength of schedule and conference seeding.

Steelers at Ravens: Go Ravens for conference seeding.

Bengals at Browns: lol

Lions at Vikings: This game doesn’t matter to the Patriots.

Rams at Cowboys: This game also doesn’t matter to the Patriots

Bills at Falcons: Go Falcons, easy one to hopefully give the Patriots the lead in the AFC East.

4:05 PM ET

Eagles at Chargers: Patriots should root for the Eagles to further send the Chargers to the bottom to the league and possible stay in front of the Jets for draft position.

49ers at Cardinals: This game seriously doesn’t matter to the Patriots.

Giants at Buccaneers: Patriots should root for the Buccaneers to win for the sake of strength of schedule and to help the Giants draft stock, but for the Giants to reveal every weakness of the Tampa Bay roster.

4:25 PM ET

Raiders at Broncos: How about a tie? Really, though, which team is scarier? This is a push.

8:30 PM ET

Colts at Seahawks: Go Seattle and keep Indianapolis at the bottom of the AFC South.
