Generic Viagra India

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, generic viagra india catching seven passes for 89 yards, generic viagra india his second-highest total of the season.

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

“Just a screen pass, generic viagra india we do our best to block downfield, generic viagra india and unfortunately the ball popped out, generic viagra india” Lloyd said. Generic viagra india “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

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

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

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, generic viagra india with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, generic viagra india back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Generic viagra india The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, generic viagra india defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, generic viagra india safety Derrick Martin, generic viagra india and fullback James Develin, generic viagra india who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Generic viagra india 28, generic viagra india but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, generic viagra india 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, generic viagra india a rookie from Mississippi, generic viagra india was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Generic viagra india 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Generic viagra india He hadn’t played since Oct. Generic viagra india 14 at Seattle, generic viagra india when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Generic viagra india The injury cost him two games, generic viagra india then the suspension added four more.

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

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, generic viagra india the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Generic viagra india But he was ready to talk after the game, generic viagra india in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, generic viagra india” Bolden said. Generic viagra india “Missing four weeks, generic viagra india you try not to get out of shape, generic viagra india you keep yourself active, generic viagra india it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Generic viagra india Saddened that it happened, generic viagra india but the team kept going, generic viagra india so just got to keep moving forward, generic viagra india” Bolden said. Generic viagra india “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, generic viagra india 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. Generic viagra india The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, generic viagra india the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, generic viagra india one behind the Chicago Bears. Generic viagra india Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Generic viagra india Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, generic viagra india inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, generic viagra india but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Generic viagra india On the next play, generic viagra india Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, generic viagra india Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Generic viagra india Watt. Generic viagra india The ball flew into the end zone, generic viagra india with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.

Handing out Hall passes

If you’re a Patriots fan who’s never been to Canton, generic viagra india Ohio, generic viagra india and visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame, generic viagra india Canton is coming to you this week. Generic viagra india Well, generic viagra india at least it’s coming to Foxborough. Generic viagra india In recognition of the Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary, generic viagra india the busts of the five former Patriots who have been enshrined — John Hannah, generic viagra india Andre Tippett, generic viagra india Nick Buoniconti, generic viagra india Mike Haynes, generic viagra india and Curtis Martin — will be on display at the Hall at Patriot Place.

The weeklong celebration will culminate with Sunday night’s home game against the San Francisco 49ers, generic viagra india with Tippett, generic viagra india Haynes, generic viagra india and Martin serving as honorary captains.

Generic viagra india “That particular play is something we had worked on, generic viagra india even in the spring, generic viagra india’’ he said.
