Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, order discount alesse 7-7, order discount alesse going into the second quarter.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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