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

Find claritin cod He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Find claritin cod 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 claritin cod It just wasn’t a big deal.

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

“I don’t know, find claritin cod” he said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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