Order Casodex

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

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order casodex he was asked?

“I don’t know, order casodex” he said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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