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