The New England Patriots are done for the day, but there are still more games. Use this as the open thread for discussion.

4:05 PM ET Games

Browns at Chargers (-14): This is a tough one. Do the Patriots want an earlier draft pick in the second round, or do they want the strength of schedule boost? I’m going to go with draft pick on this one. Go Cleveland with the upset!

4:25 PM ET Games

Panthers are Saints (-4.5): The Patriots want the Saints to win because of strength of victory.

Rams (-7) at Cardinals: This game doesn’t matter for the Patriots, but go Rams and keep the Cardinals ahead of the AFC East in the draft order. They’re likely to need a quarterback and that could affect those teams negatively.

Giants at Raiders (-9): The Patriots want the Raiders to win because of strength of victory.
