Patriots rooting guide: Go Texans! Speaking strictly in football terms, New England doesn’t have a rooting preference: the team will play Houston and Kansas City this year, which means that it will get a chance to beat both of them to earn a head-to-head advantage. That being said, one would be hard-pressed to find any Patriots fans rooting for a team that is already declaring itself as the next NFL dynasty. Houston is the way to go.
