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

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

“I don’t know, find aricept online” he said.

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

“Obviously, find aricept 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, find aricept online but we still have things we need to improve on, find aricept online” he said. Find aricept 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, find aricept online which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Find aricept online It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

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

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

Not only was it big for the team, find aricept online but also for Lloyd. Find aricept online A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, find aricept online capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Find aricept 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, find aricept online and even his ability to mesh with Brady, find aricept online so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Find aricept online Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Find aricept online He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, find aricept online either. Find aricept online “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

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

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

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

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