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

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

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

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

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

Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, fast asleep strips free sample and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. Fast asleep strips 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, fast asleep strips free sample but he was a split second too late.

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

Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, fast asleep strips free sample so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. Fast asleep strips 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. Fast asleep strips free sample That was thrown directly over his head, fast asleep strips free sample and those have given receivers like Lloyd and Welker trouble this season. Fast asleep strips free sample Not an easy one to haul in, fast asleep strips free sample especially when you know you’re exposed to a potential hit.

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