Tentex Royal Overnight Delivery

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

“That was definitely a scheme play, tentex royal overnight delivery” Lloyd said. Tentex royal overnight delivery “We worked hard on that all week, tentex royal overnight delivery and when the opportunity presented itself, tentex royal overnight delivery Coach [Josh] McDaniels called it at the right time and we were able to take advantage of it.”

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, tentex royal overnight delivery catching seven passes for 89 yards, tentex royal overnight delivery his second-highest total of the season.

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

“Just a screen pass, tentex royal overnight delivery we do our best to block downfield, tentex royal overnight delivery and unfortunately the ball popped out, tentex royal overnight delivery” Lloyd said. Tentex royal overnight delivery “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

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

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

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, tentex royal overnight delivery with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, tentex royal overnight delivery back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

“Felt good, tentex royal overnight delivery” Bolden said. Tentex royal overnight delivery “Missing four weeks, tentex royal overnight delivery you try not to get out of shape, tentex royal overnight delivery you keep yourself active, tentex royal overnight delivery it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

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

With the interception, tentex royal overnight delivery the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, tentex royal overnight delivery one behind the Chicago Bears. Tentex royal overnight delivery Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

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



Early in the fourth quarter, tentex royal overnight delivery Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Tentex royal overnight delivery Watt. Tentex royal overnight delivery The ball flew into the end zone, tentex royal overnight delivery with Lloyd diving on it for an unlikely touchdown.
