The New England Patriots leave Week 15 with a 34-13 victory on the road over the Cincinnati Bengals which means that tonight’s contest is a pretty relaxed affair for the team and its fans — one that could have a minor impact on the playoff picture in the AFC by eliminating one club. But does the game still have some meaning for the Patriots? And who should their fans root for? Let’s find out:

Indianapolis Colts (6-8) at New Orleans Saints (10-3)

When: 8:15 p.m. ET

Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans LA

Television: ESPN

Live streaming: fuboTV (sign up here)

SB Nation coverage: Stampede Blue (Colts); Canal Street Chronicles (Saints)

Patriots rooting guide: Go Saints! The Colts will need to win out in order to have a theoretical chance at making the playoffs, which means that a loss tonight would eliminate them from postseason contention. Considering the history between New England and Indianapolis, Patriots fans certainly would not be sad to see this happen so rooting for New Orleans is the way to go.
