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

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order ashwagandha he was asked?

“I don’t know, order ashwagandha” he said.

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

“Obviously, order ashwagandha 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 ashwagandha but we still have things we need to improve on, order ashwagandha” he said. Order ashwagandha “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 ashwagandha which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Order ashwagandha It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, order ashwagandha the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, order ashwagandha Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Order ashwagandha Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, order ashwagandha and he was off for the end zone, order ashwagandha giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Order ashwagandha “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, order ashwagandha” he said, order ashwagandha “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 ashwagandha and we were able to take advantage of it.”

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

Not only was it big for the team, order ashwagandha but also for Lloyd. Order ashwagandha A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, order ashwagandha capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Order ashwagandha 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 ashwagandha and even his ability to mesh with Brady, order ashwagandha so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Order ashwagandha Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Order ashwagandha He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, order ashwagandha either. Order ashwagandha “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

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

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

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

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