Buy Cheap Pyruvitol

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, buy cheap pyruvitol 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.

Buy cheap pyruvitol 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Buy cheap pyruvitol He hadn’t played since Oct. Buy cheap pyruvitol 14 at Seattle, buy cheap pyruvitol when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Buy cheap pyruvitol The injury cost him two games, buy cheap pyruvitol then the suspension added four more.

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

As for the suspension?

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