Pats inactives: Bolden, Beeauharnais, Bequette, Barker, Dennard, Gregory, Washington.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) November 19, 2013
Vereen was placed on the temporary IR after injuring his wrist in week 1. Tonight will be the first time the Patriots have all of their weapons one the field at the same time, as both Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola have missed significant time due to injury.
Aqib Talib was the Patriots MVP through those first six games he played, regularly shutting down team's best receivers in lockdown coverage. Can he do the same against Steve Smith tonight?
