Patriots pregame show
Patriots 1:00 PM ET games rooting guide
Chiefs (-3.5) at Jets: The Patriots want the Jets to win this game for a handful of reasons. 1) it would sink the Chiefs season even further; 2) it would hurt the Jets draft pick; 3) the Patriots get a double-bump for “strength of victory” if they can sweep the Jets this year, while they already lost to Kansas City.
Broncos (-1.5) at Dolphins: New England wants the Dolphins to win for the same reason they want the Jets to win: hurt Miami’s draft pick and give the Patriots a double-bump for strength of schedule and victory.
