FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, buy prograf 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 prograf online including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Buy prograf online He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Buy prograf 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 prograf online It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy prograf online he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy prograf online” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy prograf online he was reminded, buy prograf online as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy prograf online who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy prograf online were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy prograf 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 prograf online but we still have things we need to improve on, buy prograf online” he said. Buy prograf 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 prograf online which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Buy prograf online It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy prograf online the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy prograf online Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy prograf online Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy prograf online and he was off for the end zone, buy prograf online giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy prograf online “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy prograf online” he said, buy prograf 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 prograf online and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, buy prograf online” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy prograf online “That was great protection, buy prograf online great run fake, buy prograf online and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy prograf online The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, buy prograf online but also for Lloyd. Buy prograf online A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, buy prograf online capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Buy prograf 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 prograf online and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy prograf online so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy prograf online Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy prograf online He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy prograf online either. Buy prograf online “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy prograf online we’re just executing the plays. Buy prograf online I haven’t seen the film, buy prograf online but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy prograf online though, buy prograf online and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy prograf online only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy prograf online Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, buy prograf online” he said, buy prograf online when asked about that play. Buy prograf online “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy prograf online Pretty much all I know right now. Buy prograf online As long as it puts points on the board. Buy prograf online It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy prograf online not too low, buy prograf online that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy prograf online We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy prograf online “I don’t know. Buy prograf online I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, buy prograf online” he said.
