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

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

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

“I don’t know, find discount adalat” he said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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