Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, atrovent in us 7-7, atrovent in us going into the second quarter.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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