Buy Cheap Aristocort Online

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, buy cheap aristocort online 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, buy cheap aristocort online receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, buy cheap aristocort online blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Buy cheap aristocort online He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, buy cheap aristocort online coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, buy cheap aristocort online 42-14, buy cheap aristocort online Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, buy cheap aristocort online” Lloyd said. Buy cheap aristocort online “We worked hard on that all week, buy cheap aristocort online and when the opportunity presented itself, buy cheap aristocort online 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 aristocort online catching seven passes for 89 yards, buy cheap aristocort online his second-highest total of the season.

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

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

All lined up

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

For the first time in a month, buy cheap aristocort online and just the sixth time this season, buy cheap aristocort online 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 aristocort online Logan Mankins at left guard, buy cheap aristocort online Ryan Wendell at center, buy cheap aristocort online Dan Connolly at right guard, buy cheap aristocort online and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, buy cheap aristocort online who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Buy cheap aristocort online He was back at practice last week, buy cheap aristocort online in a limited role, buy cheap aristocort online but was in the starting lineup Monday night, buy cheap aristocort online relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy cheap aristocort online with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy cheap aristocort online back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Buy cheap aristocort online The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy cheap aristocort online defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy cheap aristocort online safety Derrick Martin, buy cheap aristocort online and fullback James Develin, buy cheap aristocort online who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy cheap aristocort online 28, buy cheap aristocort online but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, buy cheap aristocort online activating Brandon Bolden to the 53-man roster and making him eligible to play against the Texans after the running back served a four-game suspension.

Bolden, buy cheap aristocort online a rookie from Mississippi, buy cheap aristocort online was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Buy cheap aristocort online 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Buy cheap aristocort online He hadn’t played since Oct. Buy cheap aristocort online 14 at Seattle, buy cheap aristocort online when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Buy cheap aristocort online The injury cost him two games, buy cheap aristocort online then the suspension added four more.

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

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, buy cheap aristocort online the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Buy cheap aristocort online But he was ready to talk after the game, buy cheap aristocort online in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, buy cheap aristocort online” Bolden said. Buy cheap aristocort online “Missing four weeks, buy cheap aristocort online you try not to get out of shape, buy cheap aristocort online you keep yourself active, buy cheap aristocort online it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Buy cheap aristocort online Saddened that it happened, buy cheap aristocort online but the team kept going, buy cheap aristocort online so just got to keep moving forward, buy cheap aristocort online” Bolden said. Buy cheap aristocort online “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, buy cheap aristocort online make sure I don’t fall too far off.”

Turning their way

Devin McCourty’s end-zone interception on Houston’s second offensive series of the game extended the Patriots’ streak of forcing at least one turnover to 24 games. Buy cheap aristocort online The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, buy cheap aristocort online the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, buy cheap aristocort online one behind the Chicago Bears. Buy cheap aristocort online Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Buy cheap aristocort online Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, buy cheap aristocort online inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, buy cheap aristocort online but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Buy cheap aristocort online On the next play, buy cheap aristocort online Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, buy cheap aristocort online Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Buy cheap aristocort online Watt. Buy cheap aristocort online The ball flew into the end zone, buy cheap aristocort online with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.
