FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, order vasodilan 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 vasodilan including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Order vasodilan He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Order vasodilan 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 vasodilan It just wasn’t a big deal.

What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order vasodilan he was asked?

“I don’t know, order vasodilan” he said.

It means you’re pretty good, order vasodilan he was reminded, order vasodilan as if he didn't realize the Texans, order vasodilan who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, order vasodilan were just another game on the schedule.

“Obviously, order vasodilan 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 vasodilan but we still have things we need to improve on, order vasodilan” he said. Order vasodilan “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 vasodilan which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Order vasodilan It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.

At 2:49 of the first quarter, order vasodilan the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, order vasodilan Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Order vasodilan Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, order vasodilan and he was off for the end zone, order vasodilan giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Order vasodilan “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, order vasodilan” he said, order vasodilan “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 vasodilan and we were able to take advantage of it.”

“That was well executed, order vasodilan” said coach Bill Belichick. Order vasodilan “That was great protection, order vasodilan great run fake, order vasodilan and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Order vasodilan The players did a good job on that.”

Not only was it big for the team, order vasodilan but also for Lloyd. Order vasodilan A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, order vasodilan capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Order vasodilan 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 vasodilan and even his ability to mesh with Brady, order vasodilan so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Order vasodilan Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Order vasodilan He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, order vasodilan either. Order vasodilan “I don’t know how many yards I had.”

As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, order vasodilan we’re just executing the plays. Order vasodilan I haven’t seen the film, order vasodilan but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”

Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, order vasodilan though, order vasodilan and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, order vasodilan only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, order vasodilan Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.

“I don’t know, order vasodilan” he said, order vasodilan when asked about that play. Order vasodilan “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Order vasodilan Pretty much all I know right now. Order vasodilan As long as it puts points on the board. Order vasodilan It doesn’t really matter how they come.”

Not too high, order vasodilan not too low, order vasodilan that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Order vasodilan We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Order vasodilan “I don’t know. Order vasodilan I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, order vasodilan” he said.
