Before the New England Patriots enter Week 11 on Sunday against the Houston Texans, this week’s slate of contests will get kicked off tonight when the Seattle Seahawks host the Arizona Cardinals in a much anticipated matchup of 6-3 teams that are a) long-time rivals, and b) both fighting for a playoff spot in the highly contested NFC West. As far as Thursday Night Football is concerned, this is one of the better games you will find.

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

Patriots rooting guide: Go Cardinals! At the end of the regular season, the Patriots will have played both the Cardinals and the Seahawks. Today’s game will therefore have no impact on their strength of schedule. However, it could change their strength of victory tiebreaker: New England may have lost against Seattle in Week 2, but will take on the Cardinals next week. If all goes according to play in Week 12, and Arizona wins tonight, the Patriots will improve a tiebreaker that might become important when the playoffs get set.
