7:02 p.m.: Donald Trump has Twitter. Right now, he probably wishes he doesn’t. Though when you think about it, referring to Bill Belichick as “Bob Belichick” probably doesn’t register on the top 10 list of embarrassing things Trump has tweeted.
6:47 p.m.: Matt Light certainly hasn’t lost any of his sense of humor in retirement.
The longtime left tackle and three-time Super Bowl champion will be honored at halftime tonight, so he took a few minutes to chat with the media just now. He said he’s more relaxed now, and he doesn’t miss the early-morning meetings when the coach would review all of their mistakes from the previous games. I’ll put together some of his quotes and post a link to the story shortly.
In other news, fans are starting to trickle in to watch warmups, and the clock is ticking till kickoff.
6:30 p.m.: Hello from a soggy Gillette Stadium, about two hours before kickoff for what is sure to be an entertaining showdown between two AFC powerhouses.
As some Texans players warm up on the Gillette turf (which had been covered by a tarp until a few minutes ago), it’s worth noting that a light rain is currently falling in the area. It’s nothing too heavy, but there’s a definite fog in the area. It seems like the weather won’t be too much of a factor, but it’s something work keeping an eye on to see if it gets any worse.

I’ll have the inactives posted here as soon as they’re announced. I’ll be keeping an eye on Chandler Jones and Logan Mankins, specifically, to see if they’re able to play. Against the 11-1 Texans, the Patriots will need them.
For now, Matt Light is about to talk to the media, and I’ll pass along any nuggets from him. He’ll be honored at halftime tonight.
