Buy Discount Cephalexin

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

For the first time in a month, buy discount cephalexin and just the sixth time this season, buy discount cephalexin the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, buy discount cephalexin Logan Mankins at left guard, buy discount cephalexin Ryan Wendell at center, buy discount cephalexin Dan Connolly at right guard, buy discount cephalexin and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy discount cephalexin with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy discount cephalexin back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Buy discount cephalexin The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy discount cephalexin defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy discount cephalexin safety Derrick Martin, buy discount cephalexin and fullback James Develin, buy discount cephalexin who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy discount cephalexin 28, buy discount cephalexin but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

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