BOSTON (CBS) – Offensive lineman Nick McDonald and third-string quarterback Ryan Mallett were added to the Patriots inactive list for their game against the Denver Broncos.

The duo joins five Patriots who were ruled inactive on Saturday: Safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Brandon Spikes, receiver Deion Branch, running back Shane Vereen, and offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer.

Again, Branch comes as a surprise.  Tom Brady has to make an effort to get either Chad Ochocinco or Tiquan Underwood into the game.  This could also mean a big game for Aaron Hernandez.  Good news for Tom, Broncos safety Brian Dawkins is also inactive, so the Denver secondary is going in a little thin.

I expect the Broncos to try and test the Pats secondary and if they do, they could be falling right into the Patriots game plan.

Tune in to the Patriots-Broncos game Sunday on WBZ-TV and 98.5 The Sports Hub at 4:15pm. After the game, tune in to The Postgame Show on 98.5 and Patriots Fifth Quarter on MyTV38.
