We're less than ninety minutes from kickoff, ladies and gentlemen, and that means it's time for a look at the inactive lists for this week's game. We will start with the visitors, as always.

New England Patriots

DE Michael Buchanan
LB Jamie Collins
CB Alfonzo Dennard
DE Zach Moore
WR Kenbrell Thompkins
Ryan Wendell
RB James White

Thompkins being inactive is, apparently, unexpected from the reactions I've been seeing. Aaron Dobson, who missed most of the pre-season and the season opener for the Patriots, is active.

And now, with a look at the home side.

Minnesota Vikings

DE Scott Crichton
LB Michael Mauti
RB Adrian Peterson
QB Christian Ponder
WR Rodney Smith
LB Brandon Watts
David Yankey

This means that both cornerback Xavier Rhodes and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, both of whom were listed as questionable going into this one, will both be active. Presumably, both will start.

And those are the players that will be sitting this one out for the New England Patriots and the Minnesota Vikings. The first quarter Game Thread will be up and running at the top of the hour. Hope to see everybody there!
