Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, desyrel free sample 7-7, desyrel free sample going into the second quarter.

The Patriots’ defensive starters were Vince Wilfork, desyrel free sample Kyle Love, desyrel free sample Chandler Jones, desyrel free sample Rob Ninkovich, desyrel free sample Jerod Mayo, desyrel free sample 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. Desyrel free sample Poor technique on Wilson’s part to surrender the deep ball so easiy. Desyrel free sample It looked like trouble when Givens was still 10 yards in front of him.

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

The Patriots’ starting offensive line, desyrel free sample from left to right, desyrel free sample was Nate Solder, desyrel free sample Donald Thomas, desyrel free sample Ryan Wendell, desyrel free sample 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, desyrel free sample including a penalty. Desyrel free sample But Lloyd was asked this week if the Pats could use the Rams’ defensive aggressiveness against them, desyrel free sample and he simply smiled and nodded. Desyrel free sample He knew.

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

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

Arrington was replaced by Moore on the second drive. Desyrel free sample He has a head injury and is questionable to return, desyrel free sample but he was standing on the sideline without a helmet, desyrel free sample which isn’t a good sign.

Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, desyrel free sample so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. Desyrel free sample He couldn’t do it last week in his return from the ailment.

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

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