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

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

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, free male sexual tonic catching seven passes for 89 yards, free male sexual tonic his second-highest total of the season.

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

“Just a screen pass, free male sexual tonic we do our best to block downfield, free male sexual tonic and unfortunately the ball popped out, free male sexual tonic” Lloyd said. Free male sexual tonic “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

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

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

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

Free male sexual tonic 28, free male sexual tonic but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, free male sexual tonic 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.

Free male sexual tonic 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Free male sexual tonic He hadn’t played since Oct. Free male sexual tonic 14 at Seattle, free male sexual tonic when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Free male sexual tonic The injury cost him two games, free male sexual tonic then the suspension added four more.

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

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, free male sexual tonic the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced.

“Felt good, free male sexual tonic” Bolden said. Free male sexual tonic “Missing four weeks, free male sexual tonic you try not to get out of shape, free male sexual tonic you keep yourself active, free male sexual tonic it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake.

Free male sexual tonic “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, free male sexual tonic make sure I don’t fall too far off.”

With the interception, free male sexual tonic the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, free male sexual tonic one behind the Chicago Bears. Free male sexual tonic Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way.
