Order Discount Phentrimine Online

FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, order discount phentrimine online but the Patriots were fully aware of the attention given to the Houston Texans and their preference for play-action passes on offense.

So when quarterback Tom Brady perfectly sold a handoff the second time the Patriots had the ball, order discount phentrimine online receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, order discount phentrimine online blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Order discount phentrimine online He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, order discount phentrimine online coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, order discount phentrimine online 42-14, order discount phentrimine online Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, order discount phentrimine online” Lloyd said. Order discount phentrimine online “We worked hard on that all week, order discount phentrimine online and when the opportunity presented itself, order discount phentrimine online Coach [Josh] McDaniels called it at the right time and we were able to take advantage of it.”

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, order discount phentrimine online catching seven passes for 89 yards, order discount phentrimine online his second-highest total of the season.

He scored two touchdowns, order discount phentrimine online the second coming on a fumble recovery in the end zone, order discount phentrimine online after Danny Woodhead lost the ball on a screen pass. Order discount phentrimine online The ball bounced forward, order discount phentrimine online with Lloyd diving on it. Order discount phentrimine online Not how it’s drawn up, order discount phentrimine online but the way the night went.

“Just a screen pass, order discount phentrimine online we do our best to block downfield, order discount phentrimine online and unfortunately the ball popped out, order discount phentrimine online” Lloyd said. Order discount phentrimine online “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

Since the start of the season, order discount phentrimine online the Patriots’ depth chart on the offensive line read more like a wish list than a realistic starting lineup, order discount phentrimine online with an assortment of injuries resulting in five different combinations.

For the first time in a month, order discount phentrimine online and just the sixth time this season, order discount phentrimine online the Patriots began the game with the five players who are designated by the team as its starters: Nate Solder at left tackle, order discount phentrimine online Logan Mankins at left guard, order discount phentrimine online Ryan Wendell at center, order discount phentrimine online Dan Connolly at right guard, order discount phentrimine online and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

The group was made whole again with the return of Mankins, order discount phentrimine online who had missed three consecutive games — and five of six — with ankle and calf injuries. Order discount phentrimine online He was back at practice last week, order discount phentrimine online in a limited role, order discount phentrimine online but was in the starting lineup Monday night, order discount phentrimine online relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Another key starter also returned from injury, order discount phentrimine online with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, order discount phentrimine online back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski missed his third straight game with a broken forearm. Order discount phentrimine online The other inactive players were offensive linemen Nick McDonald and Markus Zusevics, order discount phentrimine online defensive linemen Jake Bequette and Ron Brace, order discount phentrimine online safety Derrick Martin, order discount phentrimine online and fullback James Develin, order discount phentrimine online who was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Nov. Order discount phentrimine online 28, order discount phentrimine online but has yet to play.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, order discount phentrimine online activating Brandon Bolden to the 53-man roster and making him eligible to play against the Texans after the running back served a four-game suspension.

Bolden, order discount phentrimine online a rookie from Mississippi, order discount phentrimine online was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Order discount phentrimine online 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Order discount phentrimine online He hadn’t played since Oct. Order discount phentrimine online 14 at Seattle, order discount phentrimine online when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Order discount phentrimine online The injury cost him two games, order discount phentrimine online then the suspension added four more.

With 234 yards on 43 carries, order discount phentrimine online Bolden came into the Texans game with the second-most rushing yards for the Patriots, order discount phentrimine online and his 5.4-yard average led the team. Order discount phentrimine online Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, order discount phentrimine online gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

Bolden declined interview requests Saturday, order discount phentrimine online the first time he had been spotted in the locker room since the suspension was announced. Order discount phentrimine online But he was ready to talk after the game, order discount phentrimine online in which he played on special teams and got two late carries for 11 yards.

“Felt good, order discount phentrimine online” Bolden said. Order discount phentrimine online “Missing four weeks, order discount phentrimine online you try not to get out of shape, order discount phentrimine online you keep yourself active, order discount phentrimine online it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Order discount phentrimine online Saddened that it happened, order discount phentrimine online but the team kept going, order discount phentrimine online so just got to keep moving forward, order discount phentrimine online” Bolden said. Order discount phentrimine online “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, order discount phentrimine online make sure I don’t fall too far off.”

Turning their way

Devin McCourty’s end-zone interception on Houston’s second offensive series of the game extended the Patriots’ streak of forcing at least one turnover to 24 games. Order discount phentrimine online The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

With the interception, order discount phentrimine online the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, order discount phentrimine online one behind the Chicago Bears. Order discount phentrimine online Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

“We know we have a good defense here, order discount phentrimine online we’ve played really well the last couple of weeks, order discount phentrimine online” McCourty said. Order discount phentrimine online “The biggest focus for us is just trying to build on that.”

Even when the Patriots fumbled the bounces went their way. Order discount phentrimine online Ridley lost the ball on the Patriots’ first drive of the game, order discount phentrimine online inside the Texans’ 5-yard-line, order discount phentrimine online but Aaron Hernandez jumped on it to extend the drive. Order discount phentrimine online On the next play, order discount phentrimine online Hernandez caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.



Early in the fourth quarter, order discount phentrimine online Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Order discount phentrimine online Watt. Order discount phentrimine online The ball flew into the end zone, order discount phentrimine online with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.
