Viagra Sales Canada

By Michael Whitmer | Globe Staff

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

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

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

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

All lined up

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

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

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

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

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

Bolden: Return man

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

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

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

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

As for the suspension?

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

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

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

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



Early in the fourth quarter, viagra sales canada Woodhead fumbled after catching a screen pass and being hit from behind by J.J. Viagra sales canada Watt. Viagra sales canada The ball flew into the end zone, viagra sales canada 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 sales canada Ohio, viagra sales canada and visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame, viagra sales canada Canton is coming to you this week. Viagra sales canada Well, viagra sales canada at least it’s coming to Foxborough. Viagra sales canada In recognition of the Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary, viagra sales canada the busts of the five former Patriots who have been enshrined — John Hannah, viagra sales canada Andre Tippett, viagra sales canada Nick Buoniconti, viagra sales canada Mike Haynes, viagra sales canada 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 sales canada with Tippett, viagra sales canada Haynes, viagra sales canada and Martin serving as honorary captains.

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