Find Breast Enhancement

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, find breast enhancement catching seven passes for 89 yards, find breast enhancement his second-highest total of the season.

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

“Just a screen pass, find breast enhancement we do our best to block downfield, find breast enhancement and unfortunately the ball popped out, find breast enhancement” Lloyd said. Find breast enhancement “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

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

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

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, find breast enhancement with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, find breast enhancement back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

“Felt good, find breast enhancement” Bolden said. Find breast enhancement “Missing four weeks, find breast enhancement you try not to get out of shape, find breast enhancement you keep yourself active, find breast enhancement it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

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

With the interception, find breast enhancement the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, find breast enhancement one behind the Chicago Bears. Find breast enhancement Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

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



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