For 3rd straight week, Brian Hoyer will back up Cam Newton


FOXBOROUGH -- The following Patriots players are inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders: offensive lineman Korey Cunningham, tight end Dalton Keene, running back James White, quarterback Jarrett Stidham, cornerback Myles Bryant, and linebacker Anfernee Jennings.

This means for the third straight game, Brian Hoyer will serve as Cam Newton's backup.

There were not any huge surprises, but the trend continues of the 2020 rookie class not really contributing much.

After being added to the roster Saturday, both James Ferentz and Isaiah Zuber are active.

White will miss his second straight game following the tragic death of his father last weekend.
