FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Welcome to Gillette Stadium, where the New England Patriots host the Buffalo Bills (CBS, 4:25 p.m. ET).

Weather conditions: This could be a wet one. There's currently a light drizzle falling in the area, with steadier rain expected by kickoff. Temperatures are in the low 40s, so the precipitation will stay all rain. Winds are light.

Six more inactives: The Bills have already declared one player, wide receiver Stevie Johnson, as inactive for Sunday's game. The expectation is that quarterback EJ Manuel, who is listed as doubtful, will also be inactive. Otherwise, the Bills have five players listed as probable on their injury report and all should play. That means the final five inactives should be healthy scratches. The official announcement will come around 2:55 p.m.

Game-day chats: Once Bills-Patriots kicks off at 4:25 p.m., we'll have an in-game chat where readers can contribute questions and follow along with in-game observations. Look for a link later today.

Hochuli gets the call: Veteran official Ed Hochuli, in his 22nd season as a referee, gets the call for today's game.
