The 10th week of the NFL’s 2020 regular season has been a successful one for the New England Patriots as it saw the team beat the Baltimore Ravens to improve to 4-5 on the season. The team can therefore lean back on Monday night and enjoy an NFC North rivalry game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears.

With that being said, here’s how you can watch the game and who you should root for.

Patriots rooting guide: Go good game! Well, it’s a rather anticlimactic rooting guide today. There is really no reason one way or the other to root for or against either team. The game has no impact on the AFC’s playoff race — both teams have already lost their games against the AFC Souths playoff competitors in Tennessee and Indianapolis — and both are currently in the 2021 draft’s no-man’s land. While you could root against the Bears given that they once beat the Patriots in a Super Bowl and will start a quarterback who won a championship against New England more recently, the game itself has no real meaning from the Patriots’ perspective.
