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