Buy Discount Femcare Online

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

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



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