Meclizine Overnight Delivery

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

“That was definitely a scheme play, meclizine overnight delivery” Lloyd said. Meclizine overnight delivery “We worked hard on that all week, meclizine overnight delivery and when the opportunity presented itself, meclizine 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, meclizine overnight delivery catching seven passes for 89 yards, meclizine overnight delivery his second-highest total of the season.

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

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

All lined up

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

For the first time in a month, meclizine overnight delivery and just the sixth time this season, meclizine 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, meclizine overnight delivery Logan Mankins at left guard, meclizine overnight delivery Ryan Wendell at center, meclizine overnight delivery Dan Connolly at right guard, meclizine overnight delivery and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, meclizine overnight delivery with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, meclizine 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. Meclizine overnight delivery The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, meclizine overnight delivery defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, meclizine overnight delivery safety Derrick Martin, meclizine overnight delivery and fullback James Develin, meclizine overnight delivery who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Meclizine overnight delivery 28, meclizine overnight delivery but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way.
