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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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