FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, order ayurslim cod 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, order ayurslim cod including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Order ayurslim cod He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Order ayurslim 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. Order ayurslim cod It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order ayurslim cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, order ayurslim cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, order ayurslim cod he was reminded, order ayurslim cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, order ayurslim cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, order ayurslim cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, order ayurslim 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, order ayurslim cod but we still have things we need to improve on, order ayurslim cod” he said. Order ayurslim 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, order ayurslim cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Order ayurslim cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, order ayurslim cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, order ayurslim cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Order ayurslim cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, order ayurslim cod and he was off for the end zone, order ayurslim cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Order ayurslim cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, order ayurslim cod” he said, order ayurslim 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, order ayurslim cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, order ayurslim cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Order ayurslim cod “That was great protection, order ayurslim cod great run fake, order ayurslim cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Order ayurslim cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, order ayurslim cod but also for Lloyd. Order ayurslim cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, order ayurslim cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Order ayurslim 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, order ayurslim cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, order ayurslim cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Order ayurslim cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Order ayurslim cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, order ayurslim cod either. Order ayurslim cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, order ayurslim cod we’re just executing the plays. Order ayurslim cod I haven’t seen the film, order ayurslim cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, order ayurslim cod though, order ayurslim cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, order ayurslim cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, order ayurslim cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, order ayurslim cod” he said, order ayurslim cod when asked about that play. Order ayurslim cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Order ayurslim cod Pretty much all I know right now. Order ayurslim cod As long as it puts points on the board. Order ayurslim cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, order ayurslim cod not too low, order ayurslim cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Order ayurslim cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Order ayurslim cod “I don’t know. Order ayurslim cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, order ayurslim cod” he said.
