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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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