Batches of rain are already moving through the area. There's a small line that should push through this afternoon with the main assault expected this evening -- with a little luck after the game. The latest forecast predicts winds slightly lesser than previous reports from 20 mph down to 15 mph.
The Boston Herald's John Tomase reports that your New England Patriots will honor the 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox before the game. Sox owner John Henry, and players David Ortiz, Curt Schilling and Kevin Youkilis will be in attendance. A little extra mojo can't hurt.

Believe it or not, I'm heading to the game. I've been very fortunate this year acquiring tickets. My only regret is that I will not be here for the open thread. That mean we need you, our faithful readers, to run with the ball again. If you've alread created an account, you can comment below. (Please follow our community guidelines.)
It's so close, you can almost taste it. But first we have a division rival and defender of the only undefeated season in league history. Let's hear it out there!
Enjoy the game, and Go PATRIOTS!!
