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