What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy cheap aricept he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy cheap aricept” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy cheap aricept he was reminded, buy cheap aricept as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy cheap aricept who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy cheap aricept were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy cheap aricept the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, buy cheap aricept but we still have things we need to improve on, buy cheap aricept” he said. Buy cheap aricept “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.”

At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy cheap aricept the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy cheap aricept Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy cheap aricept Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy cheap aricept and he was off for the end zone, buy cheap aricept giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy cheap aricept “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy cheap aricept” he said, buy cheap aricept “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, buy cheap aricept and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, buy cheap aricept” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy cheap aricept “That was great protection, buy cheap aricept great run fake, buy cheap aricept and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy cheap aricept The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, buy cheap aricept but also for Lloyd.

Buy cheap aricept Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy cheap aricept He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy cheap aricept either. Buy cheap aricept “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy cheap aricept we’re just executing the plays. Buy cheap aricept I haven’t seen the film, buy cheap aricept but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy cheap aricept though, buy cheap aricept and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy cheap aricept only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy cheap aricept Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, buy cheap aricept” he said, buy cheap aricept when asked about that play. Buy cheap aricept “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy cheap aricept Pretty much all I know right now. Buy cheap aricept As long as it puts points on the board. Buy cheap aricept It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy cheap aricept not too low, buy cheap aricept that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night.
