It seems weird handing out a game ball when the New England Patriots lose, buy lukol cod but there are three players in Tom Brady, buy lukol cod Brandon Lloyd, buy lukol cod and Danny Woodhead who have a legitimate case at winning the award for valiant performance in the near-comeback loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Buy lukol cod Even though he didn’t make it to the end zone, buy lukol cod Lloyd was instrumental in the Patriots massive second-half offensive effort to put up 31 points against a tough Niners defense.

Brandon Lloyd finally broke out last week against the Houston Texans, buy lukol cod and I’m betting strong words from Pats legendary WR Troy Brown helped spurn that. Buy lukol cod He played his best game in a Pats uni last night with ten receptions for 190 yards. Buy lukol cod He was clearly the most consistent and effective wideout on the Patriots with an average of 10.6 yards per target. Buy lukol cod In fact, buy lukol cod two-thirds of all the plays he were involved in were deemed successful by SR%.

Tom Brady usually leads the Patriots in the advanced statistics WPA and EPA each week, buy lukol cod largely because he is awesome and those two statistics generally favor quarterbacks. Buy lukol cod The main reason for that is simple; quarterbacks have the ball the most and have more chances to impact the game.

However, buy lukol cod it was Lloyd who led the team in those stats and had a huge impact on the game with a 0.32 WPA and a 14.9 EPA. Buy lukol cod Only three quarterbacks have had higher WPA totals so far this week and only four finished with a higher EPA. Buy lukol cod Only Andre Johnson had more receptions and a higher WPA at wide receiver, buy lukol cod but Brandon Lloyd had him overall with significant advantages in receiving yards and EPA.

Ten catches, buy lukol cod 190 receiving yards. Buy lukol cod That’s incredible, buy lukol cod and he was the deep threat we envisioned him being when he put pen to paper and signed a contract in the offseason with New England. Buy lukol cod This game proves that Lloyd hasn’t been a disappointment, buy lukol cod because he can stretch the field and have a huge game if the opposing defense doesn’t account for him enough. Buy lukol cod The Patriots haven’t gotten Lloyd as involved in the passing game as they did against Houston and SF, buy lukol cod and it looks like he will continue to receive major targets. Buy lukol cod And you know what? It’s all for the better, buy lukol cod especially since he is the best pass-catcher on this team at stretching the field vertically.
