The New England Patriots will leave Week 11 with a victory after going on the road to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 17-10. This means that tonight’s contest between two NFC teams is a pretty relaxed affair for the team and its fans. But does the game still have some meaning for the Patriots? And who should their fans root for? Let’s find out:

Chicago Bears (4-5) at Los Angeles Rams (5-4)

When: 8:20 p.m. ET

Where: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles CA

Television: NBC, NFL Network

Live streaming: fuboTV (sign up here)

SB Nation coverage: Windy City Gridiron (Bears), Turf Show Times (Rams)

Patriots rooting guide: Go Rams! With the Patriots owning the Bears’ fourth-round draft pick next year, a Los Angeles victory is the preferred outcome tonight: the more games Chicago loses, the sooner New England will be able to make that selection next year. Other than that, the contest has little impact on the Patriots and their spot in the AFC’s playoff race.
