Patriots-Colts Game Could Lead to Expanded Game-Day Roster

The New England Patriots 38-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts is the best game in years to re-open the debate of expanding the 46-man active roster. For decades, long-time owners vetoed thoughts to eliminating or shortening the inactive list, which is currently at seven.

Their reasoning is that they believe such a move would give too much an advantage to the better team. The thinking is that if the lesser team is down seven players with injuries and the better team could add seven active players, the game would end up being a blowout.
