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