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

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

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

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

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

Danny Woodhead was open after a defender fell down in the flat, no rx lasix and he turned it into a 24-yard gain. No rx lasix 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 lasix but he was a split second too late.

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

Julian Edelman is back to returning punts, no rx lasix so it looks like the hand injury is just about in the past. No rx lasix 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 lasix That was thrown directly over his head, no rx lasix and those have given receivers like Lloyd and Welker trouble this season. No rx lasix Not an easy one to haul in, no rx lasix especially when you know you’re exposed to a potential hit.

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