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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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