NFL: Houston Texans at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve reached the point in the season where there’s football on Saturday and both games are important to the New England Patriots.

4:30 PM ET on the NFL Network

(9-4) Houston Texans at (4-9) New York Jets: This is an easy one. The Patriots want the Jets to win to both hurt Houston’s playoff position and to hurt the Jets’ draft stock.

8:20 PM ET on the NFL Network

(5-7-1) Cleveland Browns at (6-7) Denver Broncos: Both teams are still in the running for the sixth and final playoff spot and the Patriots would rather the Broncos not make a postseason appearance- so go Cleveland!

Use this as the open thread for discussion.
