The takeaway from Brandon Lloyd‘s performance Sunday was obvious: It was his best game as a Patriot. Cheap precose online In reality, cheap precose online it was actually among the best receiving performances of the Tom Brady era, cheap precose online and one that had never even been turned in by Randy Moss in his time with the Pats.
Considering how Lloyd’s first season in New England had gone up until Sunday night’s matchup with the 49ers, cheap precose online the bar wasn’t exactly set extremely high. Cheap precose online He’d been thrown to plenty — at least five targets in all but two games, cheap precose online seven or more targets in eight games and 12 or more in three games — but through his first 13 games as a Patriot, cheap precose online the former first-round pick had just two performances with 70 yards or more.
Lloyd more than exceeded whatever lowered expectations the last 13 games may have brought, cheap precose online turning in a gargantuan 10-reception, cheap precose online 190-yard performance on a night in which Brady went his way 16 times. Cheap precose online Lloyd didn’t score a touchdown against the 49ers (he still has just four on the season), cheap precose online but he played an integral role in the Patriots coming back from 28 points down in the second half. Cheap precose online In particular, cheap precose online Lloyd’s 53-yard reception with the Patriots on their own 18 yard line put the Pats in striking distance to set up Danny Woodhead‘s game-tying touchdown.
Lloyd also came up with a 24-yard grab on 4th-and-4 with the Pats down by 10 late to set up Stephen Gostkowski‘s field goal. Cheap precose online The performance was one Patriots fans shouldn’t soon forget, cheap precose online and not just because it was a coming out party for the highly touted free agent signee. Cheap precose online Lloyd’s 190 receiving yards are significant, cheap precose online as they stand as the third-most in a single game for the Pats once since Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe in the 2001 season.
Wes Welker has topped 190 yards twice for the Patriots, cheap precose online turning in a 16-catch, cheap precose online 217-yard performance in last season’s 34-31 loss to the Bills, cheap precose online as well as catching 15 passes for 192 yards on Nov. Cheap precose online 22, cheap precose online 2009 in a 31-14 win over the Jets.
Obviously, cheap precose online receiving yards aren’t the only means of judging a great receiving performance, cheap precose online as Rob Gronkowski literally has a dozen multi-touchdown games under his belt that outshine Lloyd’s game against the 49ers. Cheap precose online Still, cheap precose online Lloyd was brought in to be a vertical threat capable of producing big plays and big yards, cheap precose online and he did so Sunday in a way that’s rarely been seen even in this offense. Cheap precose online Here’s a look at some of the biggest receiving performances of the Brady era for the Pats in terms of yards (meant to be a top-10 sort of list, cheap precose online but the apparent inability to correctly count to 10 on my part means it’s now a top-13 list):
