The New England Patriots are leaving Week 3 with a win after beating the Las Vegas Raiders 36-20 at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Now, they get a chance to sit back and relax on Monday night — and to scout not one but two future opponents: the Kansas City Chiefs, who will play the Patriots next week, and the Baltimore Ravens, who will travel to Foxborough in Week 10.

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

Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) at Baltimore Ravens (2-0)

Patriots rooting guide: Go Ravens! New England, as noted above, will play both Kansas City and Baltimore this year. Accordingly, today’s game has no real impact on the club just yet regardless of the result. That being said, Patriots fans should still root for the Ravens tonight. Why? Simply because of where they meet those two teams: the Patriots will play in Kansas City, but will host the Ravens at Gillette Stadium. If the home team wins each of the three games, all of them will be 1-1 against each other. The Chiefs winning on the road tonight, however, would seemingly give them an edge over the other teams in the race for the AFC’s top playoff seed.
