Discount Trazodone Online

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

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



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