FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 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 no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 42-14, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits” Lloyd said. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits “We worked hard on that all week, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits and when the opportunity presented itself, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 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 no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits catching seven passes for 89 yards, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits The ball bounced forward, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits with Lloyd diving on it. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Not how it’s drawn up, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits we do our best to block downfield, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits and unfortunately the ball popped out, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits” Lloyd said. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits and just the sixth time this season, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Logan Mankins at left guard, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Ryan Wendell at center, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Dan Connolly at right guard, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits He was back at practice last week, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits in a limited role, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits but was in the starting lineup Monday night, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits safety Derrick Martin, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits and fullback James Develin, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 28, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 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 no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits a rookie from Mississippi, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits He hadn’t played since Oct.

Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits The injury cost him two games, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits then the suspension added four more.

With 234 yards on 43 carries, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits But he was ready to talk after the game, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits” Bolden said. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits “Missing four weeks, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits you try not to get out of shape, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits you keep yourself active, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Saddened that it happened, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits but the team kept going, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits so just got to keep moving forward, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits” Bolden said. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits 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 no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits one behind the Chicago Bears. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, buy no rx 2 complete professional whitening kits but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive.
