FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, find discount extreme thyrocin but the Patriots were fully aware of the attention given to the Houston Texans and their preference for play-action passes on offense.

Find discount extreme thyrocin He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, find discount extreme thyrocin coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, find discount extreme thyrocin 42-14, find discount extreme thyrocin Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, find discount extreme thyrocin” Lloyd said.

Find discount extreme thyrocin Not how it’s drawn up, find discount extreme thyrocin but the way the night went.

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

All lined up

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