FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, buy ed strips online Brandon Lloyd might have been doing handstands after the Patriots’ 42-14 blowout win over the Houston Texans Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

Lloyd had just resurrected himself with seven catches for 89 yards, buy ed strips online including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Buy ed strips online He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Buy ed strips online Two touchdowns in the biggest game of the season and Lloyd acted like he’d done nothing more than buy a can of Coke at 7-Eleven. Buy ed strips online It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy ed strips online he was asked?

“I don’t know, buy ed strips online” he said.

It means you’re pretty good, buy ed strips online he was reminded, buy ed strips online as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy ed strips online who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy ed strips online were just another game on the schedule.

“Obviously, buy ed strips online 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 ed strips online but we still have things we need to improve on, buy ed strips online” he said. Buy ed strips online “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.”

Lloyd was obviously practicing the Patriots’ way of saying something but saying nothing, buy ed strips online which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Buy ed strips online It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy ed strips online the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy ed strips online Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy ed strips online Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy ed strips online and he was off for the end zone, buy ed strips online giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy ed strips online “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy ed strips online” he said, buy ed strips online “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, buy ed strips online and we were able to take advantage of it.”

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

Not only was it big for the team, buy ed strips online but also for Lloyd. Buy ed strips online A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, buy ed strips online capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Buy ed strips online In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, buy ed strips online and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy ed strips online so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy ed strips online Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy ed strips online He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy ed strips online either. Buy ed strips online “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy ed strips online we’re just executing the plays. Buy ed strips online I haven’t seen the film, buy ed strips online but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”

Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy ed strips online though, buy ed strips online and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy ed strips online only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy ed strips online Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.

“I don’t know, buy ed strips online” he said, buy ed strips online when asked about that play. Buy ed strips online “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy ed strips online Pretty much all I know right now. Buy ed strips online As long as it puts points on the board. Buy ed strips online It doesn’t really matter how they come.”

Not too high, buy ed strips online not too low, buy ed strips online that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy ed strips online We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy ed strips online “I don’t know. Buy ed strips online I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, buy ed strips online” he said.
