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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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