Seborrheic Dermatitis

The takeaway from Brandon Lloyd‘s performance Sunday was obvious: It was his best game as a Patriot. Seborrheic dermatitis In reality, seborrheic dermatitis it was actually among the best receiving performances of the Tom Brady era, seborrheic dermatitis and one that had never even been turned in by Randy Moss in his time with the Pats.

Considering how Lloyd’s first season in New England had gone up until Sunday night’s matchup with the 49ers, seborrheic dermatitis the bar wasn’t exactly set extremely high. Seborrheic dermatitis He’d been thrown to plenty — at least five targets in all but two games, seborrheic dermatitis seven or more targets in eight games and 12 or more in three games — but through his first 13 games as a Patriot, seborrheic dermatitis the former first-round pick had just two performances with 70 yards or more.

Lloyd more than exceeded whatever lowered expectations the last 13 games may have brought, seborrheic dermatitis turning in a gargantuan 10-reception, seborrheic dermatitis 190-yard performance on a night in which Brady went his way 16 times. Seborrheic dermatitis Lloyd didn’t score a touchdown against the 49ers (he still has just four on the season), seborrheic dermatitis but he played an integral role in the Patriots coming back from 28 points down in the second half. Seborrheic dermatitis In particular, seborrheic dermatitis Lloyd’s 53-yard reception with the Patriots on their own 18 yard line put the Pats in striking distance to set up Danny Woodhead‘s game-tying touchdown.

Lloyd also came up with a 24-yard grab on 4th-and-4 with the Pats down by 10 late to set up Stephen Gostkowski‘s field goal. Seborrheic dermatitis The performance was one Patriots fans shouldn’t soon forget, seborrheic dermatitis and not just because it was a coming out party for the highly touted free agent signee. Seborrheic dermatitis Lloyd’s 190 receiving yards are significant, seborrheic dermatitis as they stand as the third-most in a single game for the Pats once since Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe in the 2001 season.

Wes Welker has topped 190 yards twice for the Patriots, seborrheic dermatitis turning in a 16-catch, seborrheic dermatitis 217-yard performance in last season’s 34-31 loss to the Bills, seborrheic dermatitis as well as catching 15 passes for 192 yards on Nov. Seborrheic dermatitis 22, seborrheic dermatitis 2009 in a 31-14 win over the Jets.

Obviously, seborrheic dermatitis receiving yards aren’t the only means of judging a great receiving performance, seborrheic dermatitis as Rob Gronkowski literally has a dozen multi-touchdown games under his belt that outshine Lloyd’s game against the 49ers. Seborrheic dermatitis Still, seborrheic dermatitis Lloyd was brought in to be a vertical threat capable of producing big plays and big yards, seborrheic dermatitis and he did so Sunday in a way that’s rarely been seen even in this offense. Seborrheic dermatitis Here’s a look at some of the biggest receiving performances of the Brady era for the Pats in terms of yards (meant to be a top-10 sort of list, seborrheic dermatitis but the apparent inability to correctly count to 10 on my part means it’s now a top-13 list):
