Tuesday usually is not the day for primetime football, but we are indeed living in strange times. Last week’s rescheduling due to multiple Covid-19 outbreaks led the NFL to moving a pair of games to Tuesday.

So, who should New England Patriots fans root for tonight? Let’s find out.

7:00 p.m. ET

Seattle Seahawks (5-8) at Los Angeles Rams (9-4): Go Seahawks! The Rams will still likely make the playoffs even in case of a loss, but the fact remains: everything that makes life harder for L.A. and might contribute to an early postseason exit is good news for the Patriots. The team, after all, owns the Rams’ sixth-round pick following the Sony Michel trade. | FOX

Washington Football Team (6-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (6-7): Go good game! Even considering strength of victory and strength of schedule tiebreakers, the game has little actual impact on the AFC and the Patriots’ standing in the conference’s postseason race. | FOX
