Albendazole In Canada

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, albendazole in canada but the Patriots were fully aware of the attention given to the Houston Texans and their preference for play-action passes on offense.

So when quarterback Tom Brady perfectly sold a handoff the second time the Patriots had the ball, albendazole in canada receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, albendazole in canada blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Albendazole in canada He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, albendazole in canada coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, albendazole in canada 42-14, albendazole in canada Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, albendazole in canada” Lloyd said. Albendazole in canada “We worked hard on that all week, albendazole in canada and when the opportunity presented itself, albendazole in canada Coach [Josh] McDaniels called it at the right time and we were able to take advantage of it.”

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, albendazole in canada catching seven passes for 89 yards, albendazole in canada his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, albendazole in canada the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, albendazole in canada after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Albendazole in canada The ball bounced forward, albendazole in canada with Lloyd diving on it. Albendazole in canada Not how it’s drawn up, albendazole in canada but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, albendazole in canada we do our best to block downfield, albendazole in canada and unfortunately the ball popped out, albendazole in canada” Lloyd said. Albendazole in canada “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, albendazole in canada the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, albendazole in canada with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, albendazole in canada and just the sixth time this season, albendazole in canada the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, albendazole in canada Logan Mankins at left guard, albendazole in canada Ryan Wendell at center, albendazole in canada Dan Connolly at right guard, albendazole in canada and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

Albendazole in canada He was back at practice last week, albendazole in canada in a limited role, albendazole in canada but was in the starting lineup Monday night, albendazole in canada relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Bolden: Return man

With 234 yards on 43 carries, albendazole in canada Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, albendazole in canada and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Albendazole in canada Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, albendazole in canada gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

“Felt good, albendazole in canada” Bolden said. Albendazole in canada “Missing four weeks, albendazole in canada you try not to get out of shape, albendazole in canada you keep yourself active, albendazole in canada it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake.

Albendazole in canada “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, albendazole in canada make sure I don’t fall too far off.”

“We know we have a good defense here, albendazole in canada we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, albendazole in canada” McCourty said. Albendazole in canada “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”
