Some observations as the Patriots and Rams are tied, no rx diovan 7-7, no rx diovan going into the second quarter.

The Patriots’ defensive starters were Vince Wilfork, no rx diovan Kyle Love, no rx diovan Chandler Jones, no rx diovan Rob Ninkovich, no rx diovan Jerod Mayo, no rx diovan 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. No rx diovan Poor technique on Wilson’s part to surrender the deep ball so easiy. No rx diovan It looked like trouble when Givens was still 10 yards in front of him.

Givens has 11 catches this season, no rx diovan and that’s his sixth 50-plus yarder, no rx diovan including his second touchdown. No rx diovan Givens set a record with five straight games with a 50-yard reception. No rx diovan The Patriots knew that would be coming.

The Patriots’ starting offensive line, no rx diovan from left to right, no rx diovan was Nate Solder, no rx diovan Donald Thomas, no rx diovan Ryan Wendell, no rx diovan 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, no rx diovan including a penalty. No rx diovan But Lloyd was asked this week if the Pats could use the Rams’ defensive aggressiveness against them, no rx diovan and he simply smiled and nodded. No rx diovan He knew.

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

Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, no rx diovan and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. No rx diovan Wes Welker busted his tail to get across the field to try to make the block that would have sprung him down the sideline, no rx diovan but he was a split second too late.

Arrington was replaced by Moore on the second drive. No rx diovan He has a head injury and is questionable to return, no rx diovan but he was standing on the sideline without a helmet, no rx diovan which isn’t a good sign.

Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, no rx diovan so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. No rx diovan He couldn’t do it last week in his return from the ailment.

Great catch by Rob Gronkowski toward the end of the quarter. No rx diovan That was thrown directly over his head, no rx diovan and those have given receivers like Lloyd and Welker trouble this season. No rx diovan Not an easy one to haul in, no rx diovan especially when you know you’re exposed to a potential hit.

Ridley has caught some criticism for negative plays, no rx diovan but so many, no rx diovan including the one-yard loss on the goal line, no rx diovan are the result of the line or blockers losing the push up front. No rx diovan That’s been the biggest issue in those big sets.
