Greetings from Gillette Stadium

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

FOXBOUROUGH, Mass. -- It's going to be around 70 degrees, damp and overcast here in Gillette Stadium, where the Baltimore Ravens will play the New England Patriots in the most fascinating game of the day, as far as I'm concerned.

With all respect to the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints in the Superdome, what happens Sunday afternoon in New England will resonate more loudly in the AFC.

The Patriots have some notable inactive news.

Receiver Wes Welker and nose tackle Vince Wilfork will play, but beleaguered receiver Joey Galloway will watch in street clothes.

This will be the first game with Welker and rookie Julian Edelman on the field together. I've been looking forward to seeing how they operate together.

Also out for the Patriots:
