FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, order aceon online 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, order aceon online including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Order aceon online He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Order aceon online 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. Order aceon online It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order aceon online he was asked?
“I don’t know, order aceon online” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, order aceon online he was reminded, order aceon online as if he didn't realize the Texans, order aceon online who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, order aceon online were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, order aceon online the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, order aceon online but we still have things we need to improve on, order aceon online” he said. Order aceon online “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, order aceon online which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Order aceon online It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, order aceon online the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, order aceon online Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Order aceon online Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, order aceon online and he was off for the end zone, order aceon online giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Order aceon online “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, order aceon online” he said, order aceon online “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, order aceon online and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, order aceon online” said coach Bill Belichick. Order aceon online “That was great protection, order aceon online great run fake, order aceon online and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Order aceon online The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, order aceon online but also for Lloyd. Order aceon online A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, order aceon online capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Order aceon online In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.
There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, order aceon online and even his ability to mesh with Brady, order aceon online so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Order aceon online Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Order aceon online He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, order aceon online either. Order aceon online “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, order aceon online we’re just executing the plays. Order aceon online I haven’t seen the film, order aceon online but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, order aceon online though, order aceon online and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, order aceon online only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, order aceon online Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, order aceon online” he said, order aceon online when asked about that play. Order aceon online “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Order aceon online Pretty much all I know right now. Order aceon online As long as it puts points on the board. Order aceon online It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, order aceon online not too low, order aceon online that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Order aceon online We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Order aceon online “I don’t know. Order aceon online I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, order aceon online” he said.
