NFL: New England Patriots at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots don’t play until tonight, but there’s plenty of football to watch. Here are the early games and how the Patriots will hope every game turns out.

1:00 PM ET

Jets (-2.5) at Buccaneers: Do the Patriots want the Jets to lose to gain space in the AFC East? Or do they want the Jets to win for a potential double-whammy in the strength of schedule category? Division comes first, so go Buccaneers.

Steelers (-10) at Colts: This is impossible and won’t happen, but go Colts.

Saints (-3) at Bills: Go Saints, send the Bills into a tailspin.

Chargers at Jaguars (-3.5): The Patriots want the Chargers to win for the sake of strength of schedule, and to knock the Jaguars down a peg in the AFC.

Browns at Lions (-11): Woof. Go Browns, though, so the 49ers can get the top pick in the second round for the Jimmy Garoppolo trade.

Bengals at Titans (-5): Go Titans, take a lead over the Jaguars.

Packers at Bears (-6): The Bears are seriously the favorite? Yikes. Patriots want the Bears to lose so they stay ahead of the AFC East in draft position.

Vikings (-1.5) at Washington: This game doesn’t really matter to the Patriots.
