The New England Patriots play the Buffalo Bills at 1:00 PM ET on Sunday, but there are two games to watch this Saturday.

4:30 PM ET

(7-7) Washington at (8-6) Tennessee Titans: The Patriots would like the Titans to win so Tennesse could jump ahead in the wild card race and to boost New England’s strength of schedule.

8:20 PM ET

(8-6) Baltimore Ravens at (11-3) Los Angeles Chargers: The Patriots want the Chargers to win to knock the Ravens down in the wild card race and so the Chargers still have a chance to claim homefield advantage over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC; it’d be much easier to play on the road in Los Angeles compared to Kansas City.
