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