Patriots rooting guide: Go good game! Tonight’s contest between two of the top teams in the NFC has virtually no implications on New England and the playoff race in the AFC, which means that Patriots fans can root for whoever they want. A compelling argument can be made for the 49ers, though, considering that they field former Tom Brady backup Jimmy Garoppolo as their starting quarterback.
