The New England Patriots are back on the road this week for a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. As New England looks to get back to .500 in the four-o’clock slate, it’s a busy Week 4 schedule around the rest of the NFL.

Lets get right into this week’s Patriots Rooting Guide!

9:30 a.m. ET

Atlanta Falcons (2-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2): Go Falcons! An early start to our football Sunday as the Jaguars are back in London for an early kickoff against the Falcons. The Patriots will root for the NFC team in this one. | ESPN+
