FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, cha de bugre in canada 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, cha de bugre in canada including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Cha de bugre in canada He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Cha de bugre in canada 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. Cha de bugre in canada It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, cha de bugre in canada he was asked?

“I don’t know, cha de bugre in canada” he said.

It means you’re pretty good, cha de bugre in canada he was reminded, cha de bugre in canada as if he didn't realize the Texans, cha de bugre in canada who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, cha de bugre in canada were just another game on the schedule.

“Obviously, cha de bugre in canada the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, cha de bugre in canada but we still have things we need to improve on, cha de bugre in canada” he said. Cha de bugre in canada “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, cha de bugre in canada which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Cha de bugre in canada It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, cha de bugre in canada the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, cha de bugre in canada Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Cha de bugre in canada Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, cha de bugre in canada and he was off for the end zone, cha de bugre in canada giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Cha de bugre in canada “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, cha de bugre in canada” he said, cha de bugre in canada “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, cha de bugre in canada and we were able to take advantage of it.”

“That was well executed, cha de bugre in canada” said coach Bill Belichick. Cha de bugre in canada “That was great protection, cha de bugre in canada great run fake, cha de bugre in canada and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Cha de bugre in canada The players did a good job on that.”

Not only was it big for the team, cha de bugre in canada but also for Lloyd. Cha de bugre in canada A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, cha de bugre in canada capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Cha de bugre in canada In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, cha de bugre in canada and even his ability to mesh with Brady, cha de bugre in canada so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Cha de bugre in canada Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Cha de bugre in canada He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, cha de bugre in canada either. Cha de bugre in canada “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, cha de bugre in canada we’re just executing the plays. Cha de bugre in canada I haven’t seen the film, cha de bugre in canada but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”

Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, cha de bugre in canada though, cha de bugre in canada and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, cha de bugre in canada only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, cha de bugre in canada Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.

“I don’t know, cha de bugre in canada” he said, cha de bugre in canada when asked about that play. Cha de bugre in canada “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Cha de bugre in canada Pretty much all I know right now. Cha de bugre in canada As long as it puts points on the board. Cha de bugre in canada It doesn’t really matter how they come.”

Not too high, cha de bugre in canada not too low, cha de bugre in canada that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Cha de bugre in canada We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Cha de bugre in canada “I don’t know. Cha de bugre in canada I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, cha de bugre in canada” he said.
