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

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, methotrexate free sample he was asked?

“I don’t know, methotrexate free sample” he said.

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

“Obviously, methotrexate free sample the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, methotrexate free sample but we still have things we need to improve on, methotrexate free sample” he said. Methotrexate free sample “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, methotrexate free sample which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Methotrexate free sample It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, methotrexate free sample the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, methotrexate free sample Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Methotrexate free sample Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, methotrexate free sample and he was off for the end zone, methotrexate free sample giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Methotrexate free sample “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, methotrexate free sample” he said, methotrexate free sample “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, methotrexate free sample and we were able to take advantage of it.”

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

Not only was it big for the team, methotrexate free sample but also for Lloyd. Methotrexate free sample A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, methotrexate free sample capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Methotrexate free sample In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, methotrexate free sample and even his ability to mesh with Brady, methotrexate free sample so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Methotrexate free sample Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Methotrexate free sample He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, methotrexate free sample either. Methotrexate free sample “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

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

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

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

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