There is no Sunday Night Football, so this represents the final regular season slate of games for 2017. Where’d the season go? Here’s the New England Patriots rooting guide for the week 17 afternoon games.
4:25 PM ET Patriots rooting guide
Bills (-3) at Dolphins: Is it mean for New England to want the Bills to lose to make sure they don’t reach the postseason? From a strategy standpoint, it’s difficult to beat a team three times in one season. So go Dolphins, ruin your draft status with a win...right? Now, hold on...
Bengals at Ravens (-9): Either one of the Bills or the Ravens will make the playoffs. The only way the Ravens miss the playoffs is if the Titans and Bills win, while the Ravens lose. I’d rather see the Ravens out of the playoffs more than the Bills, right? So, go Cincinnati, and go Buffalo.
