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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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