The New England Patriots did not play their best football on Sunday and were beaten 18-12 at home by the Denver Broncos. But while they will quickly turn the page to the upcoming game against the San Francisco 49ers, we will still stay in Week 6 for a bit longer: it’s Monday Night Football, after all, with a double-header coming our way.

Here’s how you can watch the two games and who you should root for.

Kansas City Chiefs (4-1) at Buffalo Bills (4-1)

When: 5:00 p.m. ET

Where: Bills Stadium, Orchard Park NY

Television: FOX/NFL Network

Live streaming: fuboTV (Try for free here!)

SB Nation coverage: Arrowhead Pride (Chiefs), Buffalo Rumblings (Bills)

Patriots rooting guide: Go Chiefs! While it seems unnatural to root for Kansas City, a Chiefs victory would help New England not fall behind further in the race for the AFC East title. Even if they beat them twice, the Patriots will need the Bills to drop some games along the way — and the reigning world champions present a perfect opportunity for that.


Arizona Cardinals (3-2) at Dallas Cowboys (2-3)

When: 8:15 p.m. ET

Where: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington TX

Television: ESPN

Live streaming: fuboTV (Try for free here!)

SB Nation coverage: Revenge of the Birds (Cardinals), Blogging the Boys (Cowboys)

Patriots rooting guide: Go Cardinals! There are two reasons why Patriots fans should root for the visitors in the prime time matchup: an Arizona win would help New England’s strength of schedule and possibly victory, and it would also hurt the standing of a Cowboys team that traded its sixth-round draft pick next year to New England. Pretty easy game to root for.
