Order Trazodone Cod

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

The Patriots made the expected move official roughly three hours before kickoff, order trazodone cod 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 trazodone cod a rookie from Mississippi, order trazodone cod was suspended by the NFL on Nov. Order trazodone cod 9 for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Order trazodone cod He hadn’t played since Oct. Order trazodone cod 14 at Seattle, order trazodone cod when he injured a knee against the Seahawks. Order trazodone cod The injury cost him two games, order trazodone cod then the suspension added four more.

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

“It was a mistake. Order trazodone cod Saddened that it happened, order trazodone cod but the team kept going, order trazodone cod so just got to keep moving forward, order trazodone cod” Bolden said. Order trazodone cod “Worked as hard as I could for as long as I could, order trazodone cod 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 trazodone cod The last team to force at least one turnover in every regular-season game was the 2010 Atlanta Falcons.

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

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

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