Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, levlen free sample 7-7, levlen free sample going into the second quarter.
The Patriots’ defensive starters were Vince Wilfork, levlen free sample Kyle Love, levlen free sample Chandler Jones, levlen free sample Rob Ninkovich, levlen free sample Jerod Mayo, levlen 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. Levlen free sample Poor technique on Wilson’s part to surrender the deep ball so easiy. Levlen free sample It looked like trouble when Givens was still 10 yards in front of him.
Givens has 11 catches this season, levlen free sample and that’s his sixth 50-plus yarder, levlen free sample including his second touchdown. Levlen free sample Givens set a record with five straight games with a 50-yard reception. Levlen free sample The Patriots knew that would be coming.
The Patriots’ starting offensive line, levlen free sample from left to right, levlen free sample was Nate Solder, levlen free sample Donald Thomas, levlen free sample Ryan Wendell, levlen 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, levlen free sample including a penalty. Levlen free sample But Lloyd was asked this week if the Pats could use the Rams’ defensive aggressiveness against them, levlen free sample and he simply smiled and nodded. Levlen free sample He knew.
The Patriots used a big set on second-and-1 before the touchdown, levlen free sample with Michael Hoomanawanui at fullback and Marcus Cannon as a second left tackle. Levlen free sample And surprise, levlen free sample Stevan Ridley got stuffed for no gain by the hardest, levlen free sample cleanest hit of the game at that point. Levlen free sample Not only did the Patriots lose that battle, levlen free sample but they got smoked. Levlen free sample I’ve thought all along that the Patriot should run when it’s given, levlen free sample or at least stay out of the packages that force them to run. Levlen free sample They’re at their best when they can take the matchup to the defense, levlen free sample whether it’s called with personnel or audibled at the line, levlen free sample and these jumbo run sets take that opportunity away.
Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, levlen free sample and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. Levlen 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, levlen free sample but he was a split second too late.
Arrington was replaced by Moore on the second drive. Levlen free sample He has a head injury and is questionable to return, levlen free sample but he was standing on the sideline without a helmet, levlen free sample which isn’t a good sign.
Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, levlen free sample so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. Levlen 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. Levlen free sample That was thrown directly over his head, levlen free sample and those have given receivers like Lloyd and Welker trouble this season. Levlen free sample Not an easy one to haul in, levlen free sample especially when you know you’re exposed to a potential hit.
Ridley has caught some criticism for negative plays, levlen free sample but so many, levlen free sample including the one-yard loss on the goal line, levlen free sample are the result of the line or blockers losing the push up front. Levlen free sample That’s been the biggest issue in those big sets.
