FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, discount noroxin online 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, discount noroxin online including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Discount noroxin online He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Discount noroxin online 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. Discount noroxin online It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, discount noroxin online he was asked?

“I don’t know, discount noroxin online” he said.

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

“Obviously, discount noroxin online the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, discount noroxin online but we still have things we need to improve on, discount noroxin online” he said. Discount noroxin online “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, discount noroxin online which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Discount noroxin online It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, discount noroxin online the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, discount noroxin online Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Discount noroxin online Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, discount noroxin online and he was off for the end zone, discount noroxin online giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Discount noroxin online “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, discount noroxin online” he said, discount noroxin online “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, discount noroxin online and we were able to take advantage of it.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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