Buy Viagra 50 Mg

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, buy viagra 50 mg 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 viagra 50 mg receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, buy viagra 50 mg blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Buy viagra 50 mg He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, buy viagra 50 mg coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, buy viagra 50 mg 42-14, buy viagra 50 mg Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, buy viagra 50 mg” Lloyd said. Buy viagra 50 mg “We worked hard on that all week, buy viagra 50 mg and when the opportunity presented itself, buy viagra 50 mg 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 viagra 50 mg catching seven passes for 89 yards, buy viagra 50 mg his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, buy viagra 50 mg the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, buy viagra 50 mg after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Buy viagra 50 mg The ball bounced forward, buy viagra 50 mg with Lloyd diving on it. Buy viagra 50 mg Not how it’s drawn up, buy viagra 50 mg but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, buy viagra 50 mg we do our best to block downfield, buy viagra 50 mg and unfortunately the ball popped out, buy viagra 50 mg” Lloyd said. Buy viagra 50 mg “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, buy viagra 50 mg the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, buy viagra 50 mg with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, buy viagra 50 mg and just the sixth time this season, buy viagra 50 mg the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, buy viagra 50 mg Logan Mankins at left guard, buy viagra 50 mg Ryan Wendell at center, buy viagra 50 mg Dan Connolly at right guard, buy viagra 50 mg and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, buy viagra 50 mg who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Buy viagra 50 mg He was back at practice last week, buy viagra 50 mg in a limited role, buy viagra 50 mg but was in the starting lineup Monday night, buy viagra 50 mg relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, buy viagra 50 mg with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, buy viagra 50 mg back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Buy viagra 50 mg The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, buy viagra 50 mg defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, buy viagra 50 mg safety Derrick Martin, buy viagra 50 mg and fullback James Develin, buy viagra 50 mg who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Buy viagra 50 mg 28, buy viagra 50 mg but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, buy viagra 50 mg 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 viagra 50 mg a rookie from Mississippi, buy viagra 50 mg was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Buy viagra 50 mg 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Buy viagra 50 mg He hadn’t played since Oct. Buy viagra 50 mg 14 at Seattle, buy viagra 50 mg when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Buy viagra 50 mg The injury cost him two games, buy viagra 50 mg then the suspension added four more.

With 234 yards on 43 carries, buy viagra 50 mg Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, buy viagra 50 mg and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Buy viagra 50 mg Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, buy viagra 50 mg gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, buy viagra 50 mg the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Buy viagra 50 mg But he was ready to talk after the game, buy viagra 50 mg in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, buy viagra 50 mg” Bolden said. Buy viagra 50 mg “Missing four weeks, buy viagra 50 mg you try not to get out of shape, buy viagra 50 mg you keep yourself active, buy viagra 50 mg it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Buy viagra 50 mg Saddened that it happened, buy viagra 50 mg but the team kept going, buy viagra 50 mg so just got to keep moving forward, buy viagra 50 mg” Bolden said. Buy viagra 50 mg “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, buy viagra 50 mg 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 viagra 50 mg The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, buy viagra 50 mg the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, buy viagra 50 mg one behind the Chicago Bears. Buy viagra 50 mg Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

“We know we have a good defense here, buy viagra 50 mg we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, buy viagra 50 mg” McCourty said. Buy viagra 50 mg “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Buy viagra 50 mg Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, buy viagra 50 mg inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, buy viagra 50 mg but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Buy viagra 50 mg On the next play, buy viagra 50 mg Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, buy viagra 50 mg Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Buy viagra 50 mg Watt. Buy viagra 50 mg The ball flew into the end zone, buy viagra 50 mg with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.

Handing out Hall passes

If you’re a Patriots fan who’s never been to Canton, buy viagra 50 mg Ohio, buy viagra 50 mg and visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame, buy viagra 50 mg Canton is coming to you this week. Buy viagra 50 mg Well, buy viagra 50 mg at least it’s coming to Foxborough. Buy viagra 50 mg In recognition of the Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary, buy viagra 50 mg the busts of the five former Patriots who have been enshrined — John Hannah, buy viagra 50 mg Andre Tippett, buy viagra 50 mg Nick Buoniconti, buy viagra 50 mg Mike Haynes, buy viagra 50 mg and Curtis Martin — will be on display at the Hall at Patriot Place.

The weeklong celebration will culminate with Sunday night’s home game against the San Francisco 49ers, buy viagra 50 mg with Tippett, buy viagra 50 mg Haynes, buy viagra 50 mg and Martin serving as honorary captains.

Secondary injuries

One downside to the Patriots’ victory was injuries to the defensive secondary. Buy viagra 50 mg The Patriots announced injuries to Aqib Talib (hip) and Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring). Buy viagra 50 mg Neither returned to the game after getting injured . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg With Julian Edelman out for the season with a foot injury, buy viagra 50 mg Wes Welker took over the Patriots’ punt return duties. Buy viagra 50 mg He returned four for 50 yards, buy viagra 50 mg with a long of 31 . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg Welker also caught three passes, buy viagra 50 mg pushing his streak of consecutive regular-season games with a catch to 107 . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg Donte Stallworth made the most of his return to the Patriots. Buy viagra 50 mg He caught only one pass from Brady, buy viagra 50 mg but the catch-and-run went for 63 yards and a touchdown in the third quarter, buy viagra 50 mg making it 28-0. Buy viagra 50 mg It was a case of practice makes perfect, buy viagra 50 mg even if the practice had been a while ago. Buy viagra 50 mg “That particular play is something we had worked on, buy viagra 50 mg even in the spring, buy viagra 50 mg’’ he said. Buy viagra 50 mg “It was just an opportunity where they were kind of flat-footed and it gave me an opportunity to run by the guy and Tommy made a great throw. Buy viagra 50 mg He put it up for me to catch it and that’s what I did.’’ . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg His team off until Wednesday, buy viagra 50 mg Celtics coach Doc Rivers was spotted on the sideline observing pregame warmups, buy viagra 50 mg wearing a Patriots red sweater and chatting up his Patriots counterpart, buy viagra 50 mg Bill Belichick. Buy viagra 50 mg Also in on the conversation: Boston sports fan Mark Wahlberg. Buy viagra 50 mg Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was also at the game, buy viagra 50 mg wearing a No. Buy viagra 50 mg 83 Patriots jersey . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg The Patriots extended their December winning streak to 13 games, buy viagra 50 mg dating to a 22-21 loss at Miami on Dec. Buy viagra 50 mg 6, buy viagra 50 mg 2009. Buy viagra 50 mg It ties the Patriots for the second-longest such streak with the Dallas Cowboys, buy viagra 50 mg who accomplished the feat from 1968-72. Buy viagra 50 mg The record belongs to the San Diego Chargers, buy viagra 50 mg winners of 18 straight from 2006-09. Buy viagra 50 mg New England also has won 21 straight games in the second half of the regular season. Buy viagra 50 mg The Patriots went 8-0 in the second half of 2010, buy viagra 50 mg 8-0 in 2011, buy viagra 50 mg and have won their first five this season. Buy viagra 50 mg The last loss from the back half of the schedule came in the regular-season finale in 2009, buy viagra 50 mg when the Patriots lost at Houston, buy viagra 50 mg 34-27 … In a pre-game Twitter message, buy viagra 50 mg self-described Patriots fan Donald Trump posted, buy viagra 50 mg “Good Luck to Bob Kraft, buy viagra 50 mg Tom Brady and Coach Bob Belichick tonight.” Needless to say, buy viagra 50 mg the Donald got plenty of unwanted attention for his fumble . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg . Buy viagra 50 mg Keep an eye out for Jerod Mayo on Tuesday. Buy viagra 50 mg He’ll be joining Subway spokesman Jared Fogle during multiple appearances around town, buy viagra 50 mg thanking unassuming fans with a dozen acts of kindness.
