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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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