NFL: International Series-Miami Dolphins Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

2017's fourth Sunday of NFL action starts early: At 9:30 a.m. ET, the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints will face off in London. The two teams are both on the New England Patriots' schedule, so the team has indirect implications on the defending world champions as well. With that in mind, let's take a look at the game.

New Orleans Saints (1-2) at Miami Dolphins (1-1)

Location: Wembley Stadium, London

Time: 9:30 a.m. ET (2:30 p.m. local)

SB Nation affiliates: Canal Street Chronicles (Saints), The Phinsider (Dolphins)

Television: FOX (national broadcast), NFL Game Pass (international viewers), NFL Mobile (exclusively on Verizon)

Odds: Saints -3

Patriots rooting guide: This one is pretty straight forward: The Dolphins are one of New England's division rivals, seeing them lose would help the Patriots in the race for the AFC East title. Furthermore, while a Saints victory would not help with strength of schedule, it would help with the potential strength of victory tiebreaker as New England already defeated New Orleans in week 2. Therefore: Go Saints!
