PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK

Patriots’ Brandon Lloyd less of a target lately

Brandon Lloyd had one reception Sunday in Miami, in the fourth quarter, on the only time he was targeted by Tom Brady.

Lloyd’s arrival in New England during the offseason was viewed as a positive: he had thrived with Josh McDaniels in Denver and St. Louis, and he would potentially give Brady another option at receiver, perhaps deflecting a defense’s attention away from Wes Welker and Aaron Hernandez.
