We have reached the midpoint of the regular season as the 7-0 New England Patriots welcome the 2-4 Browns to wet, cold and never welcoming Gillette Stadium. Once again we are here with our Week Eight Live Blog to provide up to the second updates and opinions. The Browns have struggled to date, but they do have talent, especially on offense, so the Patriots need to be aware of their game-breakers to keep them under wraps.

The Patriots continue to deal with injury issues, but they’ve overcome it most of the time. Here is the inactive report for this afternoons game:

Patriots: TE Matt LaCosse, TE Ryan Izzo, CB JoeJoun Williams, RB Damien Harris, G Shaq Mason, DL Byron Cowart

Browns: WR T. Taylor, WR D. Ratley, S D. Randall, S S. Redwine, DE C. Smith, T K. Lamm, DT E. Ankou

Kickoff is in 58 minutes, so be sure to have a tab up and hit the refresh button on a regular basis.
