FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, buy penisole Brandon Lloyd might have been doing handstands after the Patriots’ 42-14 blowout win over the Houston Texans Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

Lloyd had just resurrected himself with seven catches for 89 yards, buy penisole including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Buy penisole He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Buy penisole Two touchdowns in the biggest game of the season and Lloyd acted like he’d done nothing more than buy a can of Coke at 7-Eleven. Buy penisole It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy penisole he was asked?

“I don’t know, buy penisole” he said.

It means you’re pretty good, buy penisole he was reminded, buy penisole as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy penisole who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy penisole were just another game on the schedule.

“Obviously, buy penisole 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 penisole but we still have things we need to improve on, buy penisole” he said. Buy penisole “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.”

Lloyd was obviously practicing the Patriots’ way of saying something but saying nothing, buy penisole which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Buy penisole It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy penisole the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy penisole Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy penisole Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy penisole and he was off for the end zone, buy penisole giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy penisole “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy penisole” he said, buy penisole “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 penisole and we were able to take advantage of it.”

“That was well executed, buy penisole” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy penisole “That was great protection, buy penisole great run fake, buy penisole and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy penisole The players did a good job on that.”

Not only was it big for the team, buy penisole but also for Lloyd. Buy penisole A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, buy penisole capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Buy penisole In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, buy penisole and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy penisole so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy penisole Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy penisole He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy penisole either. Buy penisole “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy penisole we’re just executing the plays. Buy penisole I haven’t seen the film, buy penisole but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”

Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy penisole though, buy penisole and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy penisole only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy penisole Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.

“I don’t know, buy penisole” he said, buy penisole when asked about that play. Buy penisole “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy penisole Pretty much all I know right now. Buy penisole As long as it puts points on the board. Buy penisole It doesn’t really matter how they come.”

Not too high, buy penisole not too low, buy penisole that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy penisole We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy penisole “I don’t know. Buy penisole I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, buy penisole” he said.
