The New England Patriots played in the early slate, but there are plenty of important games still on the schedule. Here’s the rooting guide.

Rams at Bears: This is a tricky game. The Patriots own the Bears second round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, so do you root for Chicago to lose for the sake of the draft pick? Or do you root for Chicago to win for the sake of the Patriots’ strength of victory, which could be an important tiebreaker? I say root for the draft pick because we’re also rooting for the Chargers to lose- and they’d be the only team that could cause the “strength of victory” tiebreaker to come into play.
