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.
The Patriots have some notable inactive news.
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:
Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis
Guard Kendall Simmons
Offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger
Defensive tackle Ron Brace
Linebacker Jerod Mayo
Cornerback Terrence Wheatley
Defensive back Bret Lockett
