Find Duetact No Rx Required

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, find duetact no rx required 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 duetact no rx required receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, find duetact no rx required blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Find duetact no rx required He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, find duetact no rx required coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, find duetact no rx required 42-14, find duetact no rx required Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, find duetact no rx required” Lloyd said. Find duetact no rx required “We worked hard on that all week, find duetact no rx required and when the opportunity presented itself, find duetact no rx required 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 duetact no rx required catching seven passes for 89 yards, find duetact no rx required his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, find duetact no rx required the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, find duetact no rx required after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Find duetact no rx required The ball bounced forward, find duetact no rx required with Lloyd diving on it. Find duetact no rx required Not how it’s drawn up, find duetact no rx required but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, find duetact no rx required we do our best to block downfield, find duetact no rx required and unfortunately the ball popped out, find duetact no rx required” Lloyd said. Find duetact no rx required “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, find duetact no rx required the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, find duetact no rx required with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, find duetact no rx required and just the sixth time this season, find duetact no rx required the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, find duetact no rx required Logan Mankins at left guard, find duetact no rx required Ryan Wendell at center, find duetact no rx required Dan Connolly at right guard, find duetact no rx required and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, find duetact no rx required who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Find duetact no rx required He was back at practice last week, find duetact no rx required in a limited role, find duetact no rx required but was in the starting lineup Monday night, find duetact no rx required relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, find duetact no rx required with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, find duetact no rx required back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Find duetact no rx required The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, find duetact no rx required defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, find duetact no rx required safety Derrick Martin, find duetact no rx required and fullback James Develin, find duetact no rx required who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Find duetact no rx required 28, find duetact no rx required but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, find duetact no rx required 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 duetact no rx required a rookie from Mississippi, find duetact no rx required was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Find duetact no rx required 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Find duetact no rx required He hadn’t played since Oct. Find duetact no rx required 14 at Seattle, find duetact no rx required when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Find duetact no rx required The injury cost him two games, find duetact no rx required then the suspension added four more.

With 234 yards on 43 carries, find duetact no rx required Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, find duetact no rx required and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Find duetact no rx required Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, find duetact no rx required gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, find duetact no rx required the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Find duetact no rx required But he was ready to talk after the game, find duetact no rx required in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, find duetact no rx required” Bolden said. Find duetact no rx required “Missing four weeks, find duetact no rx required you try not to get out of shape, find duetact no rx required you keep yourself active, find duetact no rx required it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Find duetact no rx required Saddened that it happened, find duetact no rx required but the team kept going, find duetact no rx required so just got to keep moving forward, find duetact no rx required” Bolden said. Find duetact no rx required “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, find duetact no rx required 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 duetact no rx required The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, find duetact no rx required the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, find duetact no rx required one behind the Chicago Bears. Find duetact no rx required Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

“We know we have a good defense here, find duetact no rx required we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, find duetact no rx required” McCourty said. Find duetact no rx required “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Find duetact no rx required Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, find duetact no rx required inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, find duetact no rx required but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Find duetact no rx required On the next play, find duetact no rx required Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, find duetact no rx required Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Find duetact no rx required Watt. Find duetact no rx required The ball flew into the end zone, find duetact no rx required with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.
