Broncos Inactives: Eric Decker and Brian Dawkins Out For Denver

The Denver Broncos will attempt to continue their magical season tonight as they travel to Foxboro to face the New England Patriots in an AFC Divisional match-up. These two teams met less than a month ago in Denver, when Tom Brady threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 41-23 victory over Tim Tebow and the Broncos.

Tebow and the Broncos would not win another regular season game following their week 15 loss to the Patriots, but snuck into the playoffs and pulled off an epic upset over the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime last week. Unfortunately, the Broncos lost their number one receiver, Eric Decker, to a knee injury last week. He, along with defensive leader, Brian Dawkins are both inactive for tonight's game, according to the Broncos official Twitter.

#Broncos inactives: Decker, Paxton, Dawkins, J. Thomas, R. Harris, Harvey & Mohamed.
