Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, buy stop smoking cod 7-7, buy stop smoking cod going into the second quarter.

The Patriots’ defensive starters were Vince Wilfork, buy stop smoking cod Kyle Love, buy stop smoking cod Chandler Jones, buy stop smoking cod Rob Ninkovich, buy stop smoking cod Jerod Mayo, buy stop smoking cod Brandon Spikes and Dont’a Hightower in a 4-3 base with Kyle Arrington (right) and Alfonzo Dennard (left) at corner and Devin McCourty and Tavon Wilson at safety.

Cornerback Sterling Moore subbed for Spikes in the nickel on the first drive of the game.

Hightower was lined up in the slot in man coverage on a receiver at one point.

Chris Givens beat Wilson on the touchdown because Wilson was too stiff and flat-footed while Givens ran full speed in his direction. Buy stop smoking cod Poor technique on Wilson’s part to surrender the deep ball so easiy. Buy stop smoking cod It looked like trouble when Givens was still 10 yards in front of him.

Givens has 11 catches this season, buy stop smoking cod and that’s his sixth 50-plus yarder, buy stop smoking cod including his second touchdown. Buy stop smoking cod Givens set a record with five straight games with a 50-yard reception. Buy stop smoking cod The Patriots knew that would be coming.

The Patriots’ starting offensive line, buy stop smoking cod from left to right, buy stop smoking cod was Nate Solder, buy stop smoking cod Donald Thomas, buy stop smoking cod Ryan Wendell, buy stop smoking cod Dan Connolly and Sebastian Vollmer.

Brandon Lloyd broke free from an aggressive look from cornerback Janoris Jenkins and scored an easy 19-yard touchdown on the Patriots’ third third-and-short conversion on the drive, buy stop smoking cod including a penalty. Buy stop smoking cod But Lloyd was asked this week if the Pats could use the Rams’ defensive aggressiveness against them, buy stop smoking cod and he simply smiled and nodded. Buy stop smoking cod He knew.

The Patriots used a big set on second-and-1 before the touchdown, buy stop smoking cod with Michael Hoomanawanui at fullback and Marcus Cannon as a second left tackle. Buy stop smoking cod And surprise, buy stop smoking cod Stevan Ridley got stuffed for no gain by the hardest, buy stop smoking cod cleanest hit of the game at that point. Buy stop smoking cod Not only did the Patriots lose that battle, buy stop smoking cod but they got smoked. Buy stop smoking cod I’ve thought all along that the Patriot should run when it’s given, buy stop smoking cod or at least stay out of the packages that force them to run. Buy stop smoking cod They’re at their best when they can take the matchup to the defense, buy stop smoking cod whether it’s called with personnel or audibled at the line, buy stop smoking cod and these jumbo run sets take that opportunity away.

Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, buy stop smoking cod and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. Buy stop smoking cod Wes Welker busted his tail to get across the field to try to make the block that would have sprung him down the sideline, buy stop smoking cod but he was a split second too late.

Arrington was replaced by Moore on the second drive. Buy stop smoking cod He has a head injury and is questionable to return, buy stop smoking cod but he was standing on the sideline without a helmet, buy stop smoking cod which isn’t a good sign.

Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, buy stop smoking cod so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. Buy stop smoking cod He couldn’t do it last week in his return from the ailment.

Great catch by Rob Gronkowski toward the end of the quarter. Buy stop smoking cod That was thrown directly over his head, buy stop smoking cod and those have given receivers like Lloyd and Welker trouble this season. Buy stop smoking cod Not an easy one to haul in, buy stop smoking cod especially when you know you’re exposed to a potential hit.

Ridley has caught some criticism for negative plays, buy stop smoking cod but so many, buy stop smoking cod including the one-yard loss on the goal line, buy stop smoking cod are the result of the line or blockers losing the push up front. Buy stop smoking cod That’s been the biggest issue in those big sets.
