FOXBOROUGH — He might be able to leap over a moving car — more on that later — but receiver Brandon Lloyd is hoping the second half of the Patriots’ season finds him jumping into the end zone more often.

Lloyd, allopurinol online review signed to a three-year, allopurinol online review $12 million deal in the offseason, allopurinol online review began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, allopurinol online review eight the next week, allopurinol online review then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, allopurinol online review 80-yard game at Seattle, allopurinol online review Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Allopurinol online review He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, allopurinol online review including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Allopurinol online review 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Allopurinol online review Both, allopurinol online review though, allopurinol online review went for touchdowns, allopurinol online review possibly a positive sign as the Patriots get set to come off their bye week with a home game on Sunday with the Bills.

Despite the week off, allopurinol online review can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, allopurinol online review” he said.

True, allopurinol online review but both went for touchdowns. Allopurinol online review Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, allopurinol online review two touchdowns, allopurinol online review” Lloyd said. Allopurinol online review “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, allopurinol online review but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Allopurinol online review Halfway into his first season, allopurinol online review it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, allopurinol online review and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, allopurinol online review in the spring, allopurinol online review that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, allopurinol online review ‘All right, allopurinol online review we got it, allopurinol online review’ because we still have so much work to do, allopurinol online review” Lloyd said. Allopurinol online review “We’re working hard to improve on that, allopurinol online review week by week and day by day, allopurinol online review but it’s a group effort, allopurinol online review and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Allopurinol online review We just keep working at it, allopurinol online review so we go out there in practice and we work on things and Coach [Bill Belichick] tells us things that we need to do better. Allopurinol online review We’re always trying to make those improvements. Allopurinol online review I think you just have to keep going out there to work at it and see if it can be better each day.”

With 37 receptions for 435 yards and three touchdowns, allopurinol online review Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, allopurinol online review which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, allopurinol online review448 yards. Allopurinol online review That number appears safe, allopurinol online review barring an exceptional second half, allopurinol online review but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, allopurinol online review combining with receiver Wes Welker and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez to give Brady plenty of powerful options through the air.

That’s the great aspect of the Patriots’ offense. Allopurinol online review It could be a different standout every week, allopurinol online review either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, allopurinol online review regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, allopurinol online review I’ve never been declared a No. Allopurinol online review 1 target, allopurinol online review like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, allopurinol online review where it’s clear, allopurinol online review” said Lloyd, allopurinol online review who is in his 10th season, allopurinol online review but is already on his sixth organization. Allopurinol online review “Coming to a team like this, allopurinol online review it’s natural for me, allopurinol online review to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, allopurinol online review I’ll be available for him. Allopurinol online review They want me to be open, allopurinol online review and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, allopurinol online review Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Allopurinol online review What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, allopurinol online review working mostly on the outside, allopurinol online review using his speed and jumping ability to make plays downfield.

That jumping ability was on display in a video that surfaced this week from over the summer, allopurinol online review when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Allopurinol online review Impressive, allopurinol online review but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, allopurinol online review when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, allopurinol online review they mean more, allopurinol online review they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, allopurinol online review coming into November and December, allopurinol online review” Lloyd said. Allopurinol online review “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, allopurinol online review so you have stuff you can look forward to, allopurinol online review stuff that you can improve on.”
