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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, order lipotrexate 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.

Order lipotrexate online 14 at Seattle, order lipotrexate online when he injured a knee against the Seahawks.

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

As for the suspension?

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