FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, find danazol 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 danazol cod He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Find danazol 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 danazol cod It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, find danazol cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, find danazol cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, find danazol cod he was reminded, find danazol cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, find danazol cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, find danazol cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, find danazol 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 danazol cod but we still have things we need to improve on, find danazol cod” he said. Find danazol 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 danazol cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Find danazol cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, find danazol cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, find danazol cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Find danazol cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, find danazol cod and he was off for the end zone, find danazol cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Find danazol cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, find danazol cod” he said, find danazol 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 danazol cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, find danazol cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Find danazol cod “That was great protection, find danazol cod great run fake, find danazol cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Find danazol cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, find danazol cod but also for Lloyd. Find danazol cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, find danazol cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Find danazol 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 danazol cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, find danazol cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Find danazol cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Find danazol cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, find danazol cod either. Find danazol cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, find danazol cod we’re just executing the plays. Find danazol cod I haven’t seen the film, find danazol cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, find danazol cod though, find danazol cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, find danazol cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, find danazol cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, find danazol cod” he said, find danazol cod when asked about that play. Find danazol cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Find danazol cod Pretty much all I know right now. Find danazol cod As long as it puts points on the board. Find danazol cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, find danazol cod not too low, find danazol cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Find danazol cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Find danazol cod “I don’t know. Find danazol cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, find danazol cod” he said.
