By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, januvia overnight delivery catching seven passes for 89 yards, januvia overnight delivery his second-highest total of the season.

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

“Just a screen pass, januvia overnight delivery we do our best to block downfield, januvia overnight delivery and unfortunately the ball popped out, januvia overnight delivery” Lloyd said. Januvia overnight delivery “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

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

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

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, januvia overnight delivery with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, januvia overnight delivery back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

“Felt good, januvia overnight delivery” Bolden said. Januvia overnight delivery “Missing four weeks, januvia overnight delivery you try not to get out of shape, januvia overnight delivery you keep yourself active, januvia overnight delivery it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

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

With the interception, januvia overnight delivery the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, januvia overnight delivery one behind the Chicago Bears. Januvia overnight delivery Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Januvia overnight delivery Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, januvia overnight delivery inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, januvia overnight delivery but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive.
