FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, find actos cod Brandon Lloyd might have been doing handstands after the Patriots’ 42-14 blowout win over the Houston Texans Monday night at Gillette Stadium.
Lloyd had just resurrected himself with seven catches for 89 yards, find actos cod including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Find actos cod He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Find actos cod Two touchdowns in the biggest game of the season and Lloyd acted like he’d done nothing more than buy a can of Coke at 7-Eleven. Find actos cod It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, find actos cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, find actos cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, find actos cod he was reminded, find actos cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, find actos cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, find actos cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, find actos cod the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, find actos cod but we still have things we need to improve on, find actos cod” he said. Find actos cod “I think we had a great week of practice and we did the things that were necessary to come out and execute well and it was a team effort.”
Lloyd was obviously practicing the Patriots’ way of saying something but saying nothing, find actos cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Find actos cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, find actos cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, find actos cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Find actos cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, find actos cod and he was off for the end zone, find actos cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Find actos cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, find actos cod” he said, find actos cod “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, find actos cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, find actos cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Find actos cod “That was great protection, find actos cod great run fake, find actos cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Find actos cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, find actos cod but also for Lloyd. Find actos cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, find actos cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Find actos cod In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.
There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, find actos cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, find actos cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Find actos cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Find actos cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, find actos cod either. Find actos cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, find actos cod we’re just executing the plays. Find actos cod I haven’t seen the film, find actos cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, find actos cod though, find actos cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, find actos cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, find actos cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, find actos cod” he said, find actos cod when asked about that play. Find actos cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Find actos cod Pretty much all I know right now. Find actos cod As long as it puts points on the board. Find actos cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, find actos cod not too low, find actos cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Find actos cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Find actos cod “I don’t know. Find actos cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, find actos cod” he said.
