What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy cheap didronel he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy cheap didronel” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy cheap didronel he was reminded, buy cheap didronel as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy cheap didronel who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy cheap didronel were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy cheap didronel the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, buy cheap didronel but we still have things we need to improve on, buy cheap didronel” he said. Buy cheap didronel “I think we had a great week of practice and we did the things that were necessary to come out and execute well and it was a team effort.”

At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy cheap didronel the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy cheap didronel Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy cheap didronel Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy cheap didronel and he was off for the end zone, buy cheap didronel giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy cheap didronel “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy cheap didronel” he said, buy cheap didronel “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, buy cheap didronel and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, buy cheap didronel” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy cheap didronel “That was great protection, buy cheap didronel great run fake, buy cheap didronel and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him.

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, buy cheap didronel and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy cheap didronel so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy cheap didronel Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy cheap didronel He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy cheap didronel either. Buy cheap didronel “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy cheap didronel we’re just executing the plays. Buy cheap didronel I haven’t seen the film, buy cheap didronel but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy cheap didronel though, buy cheap didronel and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy cheap didronel only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy cheap didronel Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, buy cheap didronel” he said, buy cheap didronel when asked about that play. Buy cheap didronel “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy cheap didronel Pretty much all I know right now. Buy cheap didronel As long as it puts points on the board. Buy cheap didronel It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy cheap didronel not too low, buy cheap didronel that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night.
