The takeaway from Brandon Lloyd‘s performance Sunday was obvious: It was his best game as a Patriot. Order strontium bone maker In reality, order strontium bone maker it was actually among the best receiving performances of the Tom Brady era, order strontium bone maker and one that had never even been turned in by Randy Moss in his time with the Pats.

Considering how Lloyd’s first season in New England had gone up until Sunday night’s matchup with the 49ers, order strontium bone maker the bar wasn’t exactly set extremely high. Order strontium bone maker He’d been thrown to plenty — at least five targets in all but two games, order strontium bone maker seven or more targets in eight games and 12 or more in three games — but through his first 13 games as a Patriot, order strontium bone maker the former first-round pick had just two performances with 70 yards or more.

Lloyd more than exceeded whatever lowered expectations the last 13 games may have brought, order strontium bone maker turning in a gargantuan 10-reception, order strontium bone maker 190-yard performance on a night in which Brady went his way 16 times. Order strontium bone maker Lloyd didn’t score a touchdown against the 49ers (he still has just four on the season), order strontium bone maker but he played an integral role in the Patriots coming back from 28 points down in the second half. Order strontium bone maker In particular, order strontium bone maker Lloyd’s 53-yard reception with the Patriots on their own 18 yard line put the Pats in striking distance to set up Danny Woodhead‘s game-tying touchdown.

Order strontium bone maker The performance was one Patriots fans shouldn’t soon forget, order strontium bone maker and not just because it was a coming out party for the highly touted free agent signee. Order strontium bone maker Lloyd’s 190 receiving yards are significant, order strontium bone maker as they stand as the third-most in a single game for the Pats once since Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe in the 2001 season.

Wes Welker has topped 190 yards twice for the Patriots, order strontium bone maker turning in a 16-catch, order strontium bone maker 217-yard performance in last season’s 34-31 loss to the Bills, order strontium bone maker as well as catching 15 passes for 192 yards on Nov. Order strontium bone maker 22, order strontium bone maker 2009 in a 31-14 win over the Jets.
