The kickoff for tonight's game has been pushed back to 25 past the hour.

Inactive for Denver are DT Marcus Thomas, WR Demaryius Thomas, NT Ty Warren, LB D.J. Williams, OL Tony Hills, OL Manny Ramirez, and DE Derrick Harvey. The absence of Marcus Thomas and Ty Warren is likely behind the decision to sit Harvey and dress DT Mitch Unrein. Meanwhile, inactive for Oakland are WR Louis Murphy, S Mike Mitchell, LB Bruce Davis, G Bruce Campbell, WR Derek Hagan, TE David Ausberry, and TE Kevin Boss. Hagan is something of a surprise, as he had been listed as probable and joins Murphy and Boss among key receiving targets missing tonight for the Raiders.

Notable inactives for the Pats are RT Sebastian Vollmer, LB Brandon Spikes, and QB Ryan Mallett. Meanwhile, DT Albert Haynesworth will be active for New England while RB Larry Johnson will be active for Miami in place of the injured Daniel Thomas.
