Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, discount fatblast extreme 7-7, discount fatblast extreme going into the second quarter.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, discount fatblast extreme so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. Discount fatblast extreme He couldn’t do it last week in his return from the ailment.

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

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