Cheap Cephalexin Online

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

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



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