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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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