Find Tentex Royal

By Joe Soriano |

It seems weird handing out a game ball when the New England Patriots lose, find tentex royal but there are three players in Tom Brady, find tentex royal Brandon Lloyd, find tentex royal and Danny Woodhead who have a legitimate case at winning the award for valiant performance in the near-comeback loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Find tentex royal Even though he didn’t make it to the end zone, find tentex royal Lloyd was instrumental in the Patriots massive second-half offensive effort to put up 31 points against a tough Niners defense.

Brandon Lloyd finally broke out last week against the Houston Texans, find tentex royal and I’m betting strong words from Pats legendary WR Troy Brown helped spurn that. Find tentex royal He played his best game in a Pats uni last night with ten receptions for 190 yards. Find tentex royal He was clearly the most consistent and effective wideout on the Patriots with an average of 10.6 yards per target. Find tentex royal In fact, find tentex royal two-thirds of all the plays he were involved in were deemed successful by SR%.

Tom Brady usually leads the Patriots in the advanced statistics WPA and EPA each week, find tentex royal largely because he is awesome and those two statistics generally favor quarterbacks. Find tentex royal The main reason for that is simple; quarterbacks have the ball the most and have more chances to impact the game.

However, find tentex royal it was Lloyd who led the team in those stats and had a huge impact on the game with a 0.32 WPA and a 14.9 EPA. Find tentex royal Only three quarterbacks have had higher WPA totals so far this week and only four finished with a higher EPA. Find tentex royal Only Andre Johnson had more receptions and a higher WPA at wide receiver, find tentex royal but Brandon Lloyd had him overall with significant advantages in receiving yards and EPA.

Ten catches, find tentex royal 190 receiving yards. Find tentex royal That’s incredible, find tentex royal and he was the deep threat we envisioned him being when he put pen to paper and signed a contract in the offseason with New England. Find tentex royal This game proves that Lloyd hasn’t been a disappointment, find tentex royal because he can stretch the field and have a huge game if the opposing defense doesn’t account for him enough. Find tentex royal The Patriots haven’t gotten Lloyd as involved in the passing game as they did against Houston and SF, find tentex royal and it looks like he will continue to receive major targets. Find tentex royal And you know what? It’s all for the better, find tentex royal especially since he is the best pass-catcher on this team at stretching the field vertically.
