New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts Inactives: Thompkins And Dennard Active

We are roughly 70 minutes away from the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts kicking off in Foxboro, and both teams have announced who will not be suiting up tonight.

Wide receiver Aaron Dobson is out for the Pats, but he had been ruled out on Friday. Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, and wideout Kenbrell Thompkins were both listed as questionable, but they are active, and will play tonight. Having both of them healthy is key for the Patriots, as Thompkins will play a big role in the offense with Dobson out, and New England will need Dennard on the field, if they wish to slow down the Colts’ passing game. Aqib Talib is the Patriots’ best cornerback, but I definitely think that Dennard will find himself locked onto T.Y. Hilton at some point tonight. Former Patriot Deion Branch is not active for Indianapolis, although I don’t think it would have mattered if he was. Branch doesn’t bring a lot to the field at this point in his career, and I doubt he would have made a big impact for the Colts in this game.
