FOXBOROUGH — They might not have come right out and said it, order extreme thyrocin 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 extreme thyrocin online receiver Brandon Lloyd never broke stride, order extreme thyrocin online blowing past the Texans who bit on the run possibility. Order extreme thyrocin online He caught Brady’s pass without a defender near him, order extreme thyrocin online coasting into the end zone and pushing the Patriots’ lead to 14-0 in a game they would win handily, order extreme thyrocin online 42-14, order extreme thyrocin online Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

“That was definitely a scheme play, order extreme thyrocin online” Lloyd said. Order extreme thyrocin online “We worked hard on that all week, order extreme thyrocin online and when the opportunity presented itself, order extreme thyrocin 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 extreme thyrocin online catching seven passes for 89 yards, order extreme thyrocin online his second-highest total of the season.

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

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

All lined up

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

For the first time in a month, order extreme thyrocin online and just the sixth time this season, order extreme thyrocin 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 extreme thyrocin online Logan Mankins at left guard, order extreme thyrocin online Ryan Wendell at center, order extreme thyrocin online Dan Connolly at right guard, order extreme thyrocin online and Sebastian Vollmer at right tackle.

Order extreme thyrocin online He was back at practice last week, order extreme thyrocin online in a limited role, order extreme thyrocin online but was in the starting lineup Monday night, order extreme thyrocin online relegating Donald Thomas to reserve status.

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, order extreme thyrocin 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 extreme thyrocin online a rookie from Mississippi, order extreme thyrocin online was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Order extreme thyrocin online 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Order extreme thyrocin online He hadn’t played since Oct. Order extreme thyrocin online 14 at Seattle, order extreme thyrocin online when he injured a knee against the Seahawks.

Order extreme thyrocin online Stevan Ridley has been the workhorse since Bolden was forced out, order extreme thyrocin online gaining 486 yards in the six games Bolden missed.

As for the suspension?

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