We're a little less than an hour and a half away from kickoff from M&T Bank Stadium, ladies and gentlemen. Both the Minnesota Vikings and the Baltimore Ravens have released their inactive lists for today's game. Let's take a look at who will be sitting this one out, starting with the visiting team.
Basically no surprises on the Vikings' list of inactives. Josh Freeman is active today because Ponder is not.
And now for our hosts.
The most interesting one of note for Baltimore is that tight end Dennis Pitta, who suffered a serious hip injury during the pre-season this year, has been activated for today's game. Dumervil, who was tabbed by Ravens' coach John Harbaugh as a game-time decision, will sit this one out.
And there you have your full list of everyone that will be watching today's game in street clothes, ladies and gentlemen. Your Open Thread for the first quarter of action should be popping up at pretty much any moment now.
