Buy Risperdal Cod

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

For the first time in a month, buy risperdal cod and just the sixth time this season, buy risperdal cod the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, buy risperdal cod Logan Mankins at left guard, buy risperdal cod Ryan Wendell at center, buy risperdal cod Dan Connolly at right guard, buy risperdal cod and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy risperdal cod with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy risperdal cod back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Buy risperdal cod The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy risperdal cod defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy risperdal cod safety Derrick Martin, buy risperdal cod and fullback James Develin, buy risperdal cod who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy risperdal cod 28, buy risperdal cod but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Buy risperdal cod Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, buy risperdal cod inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, buy risperdal cod but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive.
