Welcome to Gillette – and the 2010 regular season

Morning all —

Welcome to Gillette Stadium, where final preparations are being made on the field for today’s season opener between the Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals.

At the moment, a little more than three hours from kickoff, there are no players on the field. There are some groundskeepers working to make sure the FieldTurf is perfect, and some television personalities reporting from behind the south end zone.

It is a cloudy and cool day here in Foxborough, with the temperature currently around 65 degrees.

We will have more updates throughout the day, so keep hitting that F5 button to refresh…
