Female Viagra In Us

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

With the interception, female viagra in us the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, female viagra in us one behind the Chicago Bears. Female viagra in us Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

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



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