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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid 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 melatonix sleep aid online The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online safety Derrick Martin, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online and fullback James Develin, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online 28, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid 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 melatonix sleep aid online a rookie from Mississippi, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online He hadn’t played since Oct. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online 14 at Seattle, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online The injury cost him two games, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online then the suspension added four more.

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online Saddened that it happened, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online but the team kept going, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online so just got to keep moving forward, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online” Bolden said. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid 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 melatonix sleep aid 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 melatonix sleep aid online the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online one behind the Chicago Bears. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

“We know we have a good defense here, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online” McCourty said. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid 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 melatonix sleep aid online Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online On the next play, buy cheap melatonix sleep aid online Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



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