The day ahead in our fine division

BOSTON -- As you read this, I’m being chauffeured from the Boston waterfront to Foxborough.

Yes, when Tim Graham drives me around, I make him wear his driving hat.

So the day ahead starts with that lovely, scenic and speedy drive from the big city to Gillette Stadium, and once we arrive, we’ll change datelines.

The league did us no favors putting Houston at the Jets, Cleveland at Jacksonville and Washington at Tennessee on the field simultaneously. It's been a while since I’ve been to Gillette and I hear the press box TV situation isn’t great, but I will do my best to monitor the three games.

You’ll find wrap-ups on those games here after they wrap-up. Go figure.

I’ll tell you who the Colts officially deactivate, though we already know five of the eight: the Colts left Joseph Addai, Gary Brackett, Mike Hart, Clint Session and Justin Tryon home with their injuries.

Once the Colts and Patriots kick off, you’ll be subject to live banter from a cast characters, including the top people from the firm of Kuharsky Graham & Williamson. We’ll post a link to the live in-game chat here to make it as easy as possible for you to access the quality conversation as you watch the game unfold.

As soon as it’s over, we’ll see how rapidly I can provide a “Rapid Reaction,” and then I’ll bring you what you need to know from the locker room.

Sounds like a full day.

It’s cold here, but don’t worry about me. I’ve got as nice new coat to put to the test.
