Patriots rooting guide: Go Lions? The game itself has little impact on the Patriots and the AFC’s playoff picture, so rooting for a good and injury-free game could be the way to go tonight. If you are looking for connections to New England, of course, Detroit is an easy choice — from head coach Matt Patricia to general manager Bob Quinn to Trey Flowers and Danny Amendola, they all have a history with the Patriots.
