Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, buy imuran 7-7, buy imuran going into the second quarter.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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