Cialis For Less 20 Mg

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, cialis for less 20 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, cialis for less 20 mg receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, cialis for less 20 mg blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Cialis for less 20 mg He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, cialis for less 20 mg coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, cialis for less 20 mg 42-14, cialis for less 20 mg Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, cialis for less 20 mg” Lloyd said. Cialis for less 20 mg “We worked hard on that all week, cialis for less 20 mg and when the opportunity presented itself, cialis for less 20 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, cialis for less 20 mg catching seven passes for 89 yards, cialis for less 20 mg his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, cialis for less 20 mg the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, cialis for less 20 mg after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Cialis for less 20 mg The ball bounced forward, cialis for less 20 mg with Lloyd diving on it. Cialis for less 20 mg Not how it’s drawn up, cialis for less 20 mg but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, cialis for less 20 mg we do our best to block downfield, cialis for less 20 mg and unfortunately the ball popped out, cialis for less 20 mg” Lloyd said. Cialis for less 20 mg “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, cialis for less 20 mg the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, cialis for less 20 mg with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, cialis for less 20 mg and just the sixth time this season, cialis for less 20 mg the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, cialis for less 20 mg Logan Mankins at left guard, cialis for less 20 mg Ryan Wendell at center, cialis for less 20 mg Dan Connolly at right guard, cialis for less 20 mg and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, cialis for less 20 mg who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Cialis for less 20 mg He was back at practice last week, cialis for less 20 mg in a limited role, cialis for less 20 mg but was in the starting lineup Monday night, cialis for less 20 mg relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, cialis for less 20 mg with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, cialis for less 20 mg back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Cialis for less 20 mg The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, cialis for less 20 mg defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, cialis for less 20 mg safety Derrick Martin, cialis for less 20 mg and fullback James Develin, cialis for less 20 mg who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Cialis for less 20 mg 28, cialis for less 20 mg but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, cialis for less 20 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, cialis for less 20 mg a rookie from Mississippi, cialis for less 20 mg was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Cialis for less 20 mg 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Cialis for less 20 mg He hadn’t played since Oct. Cialis for less 20 mg 14 at Seattle, cialis for less 20 mg when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Cialis for less 20 mg The injury cost him two games, cialis for less 20 mg then the suspension added four more.

With 234 yards on 43 carries, cialis for less 20 mg Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, cialis for less 20 mg and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Cialis for less 20 mg Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, cialis for less 20 mg gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, cialis for less 20 mg the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Cialis for less 20 mg But he was ready to talk after the game, cialis for less 20 mg in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, cialis for less 20 mg” Bolden said. Cialis for less 20 mg “Missing four weeks, cialis for less 20 mg you try not to get out of shape, cialis for less 20 mg you keep yourself active, cialis for less 20 mg it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Cialis for less 20 mg Saddened that it happened, cialis for less 20 mg but the team kept going, cialis for less 20 mg so just got to keep moving forward, cialis for less 20 mg” Bolden said. Cialis for less 20 mg “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, cialis for less 20 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. Cialis for less 20 mg The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, cialis for less 20 mg the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, cialis for less 20 mg one behind the Chicago Bears. Cialis for less 20 mg Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

“We know we have a good defense here, cialis for less 20 mg we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, cialis for less 20 mg” McCourty said. Cialis for less 20 mg “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Cialis for less 20 mg Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, cialis for less 20 mg inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, cialis for less 20 mg but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Cialis for less 20 mg On the next play, cialis for less 20 mg Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, cialis for less 20 mg Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Cialis for less 20 mg Watt. Cialis for less 20 mg The ball flew into the end zone, cialis for less 20 mg with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.
