    Saints vs Patriots Game Thread

    Welcome to Gillette Stadium October, 13, 2013 By Mike Reiss | ESPNBoston.com FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Welcome to Gillette Stadium, where the  New England Patriots host the New Orleans Saints (Fox, 4:25 p.m. ET): 

    Weather conditions: It is a cool autumn day, with temperatures currently at 60 degrees. It is expected to remain close to that temperature by kickoff, with no precipitation and light wind around the moderate 10-mile-per-hour range, according to Weather.com. 

    Five more inactive players to be announced: The Patriots have already ruled out starting defensive tackle  Tommy Kelly (right knee) and running back  Leon Washington (ankle), meaning they have five more players to declare inactive. ESPN and media reports, citing sources, indicate that tight end  Rob Gronkowski will also be declared inactive. Those decisions will be made official 90 minutes before kickoff. 

    Ridley on GameDay cover: Running back  Stevan Ridley is on the cover of the GameDay magazine being sold at Gillette Stadium today. The GameDay magazine has a pink theme in connection with the NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. 

    Stat of the day: This marks the fourth time that teams led by quarterbacks  Tom Brady and Drew Brees will square off against other career. Brady’s teams are 0-3 in those games. 

    Corrente gets the call: Tony Corrente has been assigned to referee today’s game. On a related note, the Patriots are coming off a game in which they weren’t called for an accepted penalty. 

    National anthem: Performed by Dua Boakye, the lead singer of the Bad Rabbits. The Bad Rabbits are from Boston and were founded in September of 2007. 

    Color guard: Cranston Police Department Honor Guard, based out of Cranston, RI.

    Matt Slater is on the sideline in a Patriots track suit. He's got a different cast on his wrist that extends to his thumb.

    Stevan Ridley and Steve Beauharnais return today. Beauharnais was a healthy scratch the last four weeks. Marcus Forston debuts.

    Collie could have an impact. Certainly more ready to contribute than Boyce right now. Boyce will have his time, but he needs to learn and acclimate a bit more. Excited about what Collie may be able to do. 

    The Saints not having Moore will hurt them a bit. Allows us to focus entirely on Graham, Colston, and Sproles.

    Leon Washington is a waste of a roster spot and money, even before he is out with his ankle injury.

    I have a good feeling about today.  I really think the Pats are going to surprise a lot of people and come out with a W.

    Bracket Graham at the line just like we did with Tony G towards the end of the Falcons game.  We have to jam him.  Contain Sproles coming out of the backfield.  Limit the damage with those two and I think we will be fine.

    Edelman done. It took a few more games than I thought. We will see him in 4-5 weeks.

    Shittt.  That was a leg. 

    But that play right there is the type of play that's going to be the difference this game.  We need to convert on third down instead of the pathetic display last week.

    Dobson is such a mystery.  He had some of the best hands in college with ZERO drops his senior year.  This year, he can't catch a cold.  You can tell the kid has potential but my goodness, the rookie jitters have got to exit.  Catch the ball, kid.
