FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, find discount himplasia Brandon Lloyd might have been doing handstands after the Patriots’ 42-14 blowout win over the Houston Texans Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

Find discount himplasia He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Find discount himplasia 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 discount himplasia It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, find discount himplasia he was asked?

“I don’t know, find discount himplasia” he said.

It means you’re pretty good, find discount himplasia he was reminded, find discount himplasia as if he didn't realize the Texans, find discount himplasia who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, find discount himplasia were just another game on the schedule.

“Obviously, find discount himplasia 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 discount himplasia but we still have things we need to improve on, find discount himplasia” he said. Find discount himplasia “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 discount himplasia which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Find discount himplasia It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, find discount himplasia the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, find discount himplasia Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Find discount himplasia Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, find discount himplasia and he was off for the end zone, find discount himplasia giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Find discount himplasia “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, find discount himplasia” he said, find discount himplasia “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 discount himplasia and we were able to take advantage of it.”

“That was well executed, find discount himplasia” said coach Bill Belichick. Find discount himplasia “That was great protection, find discount himplasia great run fake, find discount himplasia and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Find discount himplasia The players did a good job on that.”

Not only was it big for the team, find discount himplasia but also for Lloyd. Find discount himplasia A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, find discount himplasia capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Find discount himplasia 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 discount himplasia and even his ability to mesh with Brady, find discount himplasia so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Find discount himplasia Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Find discount himplasia He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, find discount himplasia either. Find discount himplasia “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, find discount himplasia we’re just executing the plays. Find discount himplasia I haven’t seen the film, find discount himplasia but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”

Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, find discount himplasia though, find discount himplasia and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, find discount himplasia only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, find discount himplasia Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.

“I don’t know, find discount himplasia” he said, find discount himplasia when asked about that play. Find discount himplasia “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Find discount himplasia Pretty much all I know right now. Find discount himplasia As long as it puts points on the board. Find discount himplasia It doesn’t really matter how they come.”

Not too high, find discount himplasia not too low, find discount himplasia that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Find discount himplasia We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Find discount himplasia “I don’t know. Find discount himplasia I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, find discount himplasia” he said.
