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

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

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

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

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

Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, order discount simplicef and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. Order discount simplicef 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 simplicef but he was a split second too late.

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

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

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