Buy Propecia Online

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

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



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