Other inactives for the Patriots are rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett, cornerbacks Justin Coleman and Cyrus Jones, running back D.J. Foster, safety Jordan Richards and tackle LaAdrian Waddle.

Inactive players for Atlanta are receiver Nick Williams, running back Terron Ward, cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, safety Dashon Goldson, linebacker Josh Keyes, offensive lineman Wes Schweitzer and tight end D.J. Tialavea.
