The New England Patriots fell to the Kansas City Chiefs, but there’s still a lot more football to go this year- and a lot more games this week alone. Here’s a list of the games and the Patriots rooting guide.

Use this as the open thread for discussion.

1:00 PM ET

New York Jets @ Buffalo Bills: Go Jets because they shouldn’t have a successful tank job.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans: Get the Texans the heck out of the AFC playoff picture as soon as possible. Go Jaguars.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns: I want the Browns to win simply because it’d be hilarious.

Oakland Raiders @ Tennessee Titans: I think these are two of the stronger teams in the conference so I’m surprised it’s a 1 PM game. Patriots face the Raiders and would want Oakland to rank ahead of Kansas City in the playoff seeding. Go Oakland.

Atlanta Falcons @ Chicago Bears: Patriots play the Falcons this year and want them to have a stronger record. Go Falcons.

Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals: This game affects the AFC picture, but the Patriots don’t face either team this year. Which team is weaker? Go Bengals.

Arizona Cardinals @ Detroit Lions: Patriots don’t care either way.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington: Patriots don’t care either way.

4:05 PM ET

Indianapolis Colts @ Los Angeles Rams: Patriots would rather see the Colts than the Texans or Titans. Go Colts.

4:25 PM ET

Carolina Panthers @ San Francisco 49ers: The Patriots play the Panthers and want them to have a stronger record. Also, the 49ers can undercut the Jets tank job. Go Panthers.

Seattle Seahawks @ Green Bay Packers: Patriots don’t care either way.

8:30 PM ET

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys: Patriots don’t care either way.
