What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy didronel cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy didronel cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy didronel cod he was reminded, buy didronel cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy didronel cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy didronel cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy didronel cod the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, buy didronel cod but we still have things we need to improve on, buy didronel cod” he said. Buy didronel cod “I think we had a great week of practice and we did the things that were necessary to come out and execute well and it was a team effort.”

At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy didronel cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy didronel cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running.

“That was well executed, buy didronel cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy didronel cod “That was great protection, buy didronel cod great run fake, buy didronel cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy didronel cod The players did a good job on that.”

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, buy didronel cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy didronel cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts.

Buy didronel cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

“I don’t know, buy didronel cod” he said, buy didronel cod when asked about that play. Buy didronel cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy didronel cod Pretty much all I know right now. Buy didronel cod As long as it puts points on the board. Buy didronel cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy didronel cod not too low, buy didronel cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy didronel cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy didronel cod “I don’t know.
