Cheap Canadian Viagra

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

“That was definitely a scheme play, cheap canadian viagra” Lloyd said. Cheap canadian viagra “We worked hard on that all week, cheap canadian viagra and when the opportunity presented itself, cheap canadian viagra Coach [Josh] McDaniels called it at the right time and we were able to take advantage of it.”

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, cheap canadian viagra catching seven passes for 89 yards, cheap canadian viagra his second-highest total of the season.

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

With the interception, cheap canadian viagra the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, cheap canadian viagra one behind the Chicago Bears. Cheap canadian viagra Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

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



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

Handing out Hall passes

Cheap canadian viagra Well, cheap canadian viagra at least it’s coming to Foxborough.
