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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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