Viagra Sale Online

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

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

Lloyd took advantage of his opportunities, viagra sale online catching seven passes for 89 yards, viagra sale online his second-highest total of the season.

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

“Just a screen pass, viagra sale online we do our best to block downfield, viagra sale online and unfortunately the ball popped out, viagra sale online” Lloyd said. Viagra sale online “But we were there to make the play.”

All lined up

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

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

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

Another key starter also returned from injury, viagra sale online with rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, viagra sale online back after sitting out two games with an ankle injury.

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

“Felt good, viagra sale online” Bolden said. Viagra sale online “Missing four weeks, viagra sale online you try not to get out of shape, viagra sale online you keep yourself active, viagra sale online it felt good getting out there for the first time.”

As for the suspension?

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

With the interception, viagra sale online the Patriots have now forced 34 takeaways, viagra sale online one behind the Chicago Bears. Viagra sale online Their plus-24 turnover differential continues to lead the league.

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

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



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

Handing out Hall passes

If you’re a Patriots fan who’s never been to Canton, viagra sale online Ohio, viagra sale online and visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame, viagra sale online Canton is coming to you this week. Viagra sale online Well, viagra sale online at least it’s coming to Foxborough. Viagra sale online In recognition of the Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary, viagra sale online the busts of the five former Patriots who have been enshrined — John Hannah, viagra sale online Andre Tippett, viagra sale online Nick Buoniconti, viagra sale online Mike Haynes, viagra sale online and Curtis Martin — will be on display at the Hall at Patriot Place.

The weeklong celebration will culminate with Sunday night’s home game against the San Francisco 49ers, viagra sale online with Tippett, viagra sale online Haynes, viagra sale online and Martin serving as honorary captains.

Viagra sale online “That particular play is something we had worked on, viagra sale online even in the spring, viagra sale online’’ he said.
