By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 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 yohimbe 1200 receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 42-14, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, buy cheap yohimbe 1200” Lloyd said. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 “We worked hard on that all week, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 and when the opportunity presented itself, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 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 yohimbe 1200 catching seven passes for 89 yards, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 The ball bounced forward, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 with Lloyd diving on it. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Not how it’s drawn up, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 we do our best to block downfield, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 and unfortunately the ball popped out, buy cheap yohimbe 1200” Lloyd said. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 and just the sixth time this season, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 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 yohimbe 1200 Logan Mankins at left guard, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Ryan Wendell at center, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Dan Connolly at right guard, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 He was back at practice last week, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 in a limited role, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 but was in the starting lineup Monday night, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 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 yohimbe 1200 The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 safety Derrick Martin, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 and fullback James Develin, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 28, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 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 yohimbe 1200 a rookie from Mississippi, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 He hadn’t played since Oct. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 14 at Seattle, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 The injury cost him two games, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 then the suspension added four more.

With 234 yards on 43 carries, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 But he was ready to talk after the game, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, buy cheap yohimbe 1200” Bolden said. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 “Missing four weeks, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 you try not to get out of shape, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 you keep yourself active, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Saddened that it happened, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 but the team kept going, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 so just got to keep moving forward, buy cheap yohimbe 1200” Bolden said. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 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 yohimbe 1200 The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 one behind the Chicago Bears. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

“We know we have a good defense here, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, buy cheap yohimbe 1200” McCourty said. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 On the next play, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 Watt. Buy cheap yohimbe 1200 The ball flew into the end zone, buy cheap yohimbe 1200 with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.
