FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, find fml forte online 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 fml forte online including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Find fml forte online He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Find fml forte online 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 fml forte online It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, find fml forte online he was asked?

“I don’t know, find fml forte online” he said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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