A full day of NFL football comes to an end today with a prime time matchup between two NFC West rivals: the undefeated 5-0 Seattle Seahawks will take on the 4-2 Arizona Cardinals on the road today — quite the change from the last prime time game that saw the one-win New York Giants take on the one-win Philadelphia Eagles.

With all that said, here’s how you can watch the game and who you should root for (or not).

Patriots rooting guide: Go Cardinals! New England has both the Seahawks and the Cardinals on their schedule but there is one distinct difference between the two that is also the reason behind tonight’s rooting interest: the Patriots lost against Seattle in Week 2 but have yet to play Arizona. So, why root for the Cardinals? It has nothing to do with feeling bitter about the game against the Seahawks, but rather the NFL’s postseason seeding tiebreakers. While the game does not impact New England’s strength of schedule, it could change the team’s strength of victory in case it defeats the Cardinals later on during the season.
