Patriots | Brandon Lloyd to become bigger part of offense

New England Patriots WR Brandon Lloyd is expected to be a bigger part of the offense with WR Julian Edelman (foot) out for the rest of the year. Edelman took most of the shorter passes away from Lloyd when they were on the field together. Lloyd had only one catch last week against the Miami Dolphins, but his lack of inclusion had more to do with the team's gameplan. New England favored short, easy completions over challenging Miami down the field, which didn't favor Lloyd. Lloyd often runs slow-developing plays down the field, and QB Tom Brady didn't feel like challenging Dolphins CB Sean Smith. Smith lined up against Lloyd for 12 of the 34 pass plays in which Lloyd lined up.
