Buy Cheap Voltaren Online

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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



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