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

Buy cheap albendazole He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, buy cheap albendazole coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, buy cheap albendazole 42-14, buy cheap albendazole Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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