FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, order levaquin cod 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 levaquin cod including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Order levaquin cod He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Order levaquin cod 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 levaquin cod It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order levaquin cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, order levaquin cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, order levaquin cod he was reminded, order levaquin cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, order levaquin cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, order levaquin cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, order levaquin cod 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 levaquin cod but we still have things we need to improve on, order levaquin cod” he said. Order levaquin cod “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 levaquin cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Order levaquin cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, order levaquin cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, order levaquin cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Order levaquin cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, order levaquin cod and he was off for the end zone, order levaquin cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Order levaquin cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, order levaquin cod” he said, order levaquin cod “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 levaquin cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, order levaquin cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Order levaquin cod “That was great protection, order levaquin cod great run fake, order levaquin cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Order levaquin cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, order levaquin cod but also for Lloyd. Order levaquin cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, order levaquin cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Order levaquin cod 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 levaquin cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, order levaquin cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Order levaquin cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Order levaquin cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, order levaquin cod either. Order levaquin cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, order levaquin cod we’re just executing the plays. Order levaquin cod I haven’t seen the film, order levaquin cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, order levaquin cod though, order levaquin cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, order levaquin cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, order levaquin cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, order levaquin cod” he said, order levaquin cod when asked about that play. Order levaquin cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Order levaquin cod Pretty much all I know right now. Order levaquin cod As long as it puts points on the board. Order levaquin cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, order levaquin cod not too low, order levaquin cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Order levaquin cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Order levaquin cod “I don’t know. Order levaquin cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, order levaquin cod” he said.
