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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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