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