FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, methox 400 in us 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, methox 400 in us including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Methox 400 in us He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Methox 400 in us 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. Methox 400 in us It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, methox 400 in us he was asked?

“I don’t know, methox 400 in us” he said.

It means you’re pretty good, methox 400 in us he was reminded, methox 400 in us as if he didn't realize the Texans, methox 400 in us who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, methox 400 in us were just another game on the schedule.

“Obviously, methox 400 in us the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, methox 400 in us but we still have things we need to improve on, methox 400 in us” he said. Methox 400 in us “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, methox 400 in us which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Methox 400 in us It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, methox 400 in us the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, methox 400 in us Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Methox 400 in us Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, methox 400 in us and he was off for the end zone, methox 400 in us giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Methox 400 in us “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, methox 400 in us” he said, methox 400 in us “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, methox 400 in us and we were able to take advantage of it.”

“That was well executed, methox 400 in us” said coach Bill Belichick. Methox 400 in us “That was great protection, methox 400 in us great run fake, methox 400 in us and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Methox 400 in us The players did a good job on that.”

Not only was it big for the team, methox 400 in us but also for Lloyd. Methox 400 in us A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, methox 400 in us capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Methox 400 in us In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.

There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, methox 400 in us and even his ability to mesh with Brady, methox 400 in us so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Methox 400 in us Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Methox 400 in us He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, methox 400 in us either. Methox 400 in us “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, methox 400 in us we’re just executing the plays. Methox 400 in us I haven’t seen the film, methox 400 in us but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”

Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, methox 400 in us though, methox 400 in us and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, methox 400 in us only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, methox 400 in us Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.

“I don’t know, methox 400 in us” he said, methox 400 in us when asked about that play. Methox 400 in us “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Methox 400 in us Pretty much all I know right now. Methox 400 in us As long as it puts points on the board. Methox 400 in us It doesn’t really matter how they come.”

Not too high, methox 400 in us not too low, methox 400 in us that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Methox 400 in us We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Methox 400 in us “I don’t know. Methox 400 in us I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, methox 400 in us” he said.
