Lloyd was targeted eight times by Brady (only tight end Rob Gronkowski had more passes thrown to him), but the 31-year-old veteran finished with only one catch for six yards.
Among those seven incompletions were three drops on Lloyd's part as well as a few deep passes where Brady appeared to overthrow the ball.
On Wednesday, Lloyd explained his performance to reporters.
"The ball didn't stick as well as I like it to, but that's why we have such an accomplished group of pass-catchers," Lloyd said. "If a guy is not having the night that he would particularly like, there's other guys that can pick up the slack. Tom does a great job of finding receivers and continuing the positive plays."
Lloyd declined further comment on the game, adding only "you try to do your best just to execute plays."
