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

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

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Alternate to viagra Both, alternate to viagra though, alternate to viagra went for touchdowns, alternate to viagra 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, alternate to viagra can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, alternate to viagra” he said.

True, alternate to viagra but both went for touchdowns. Alternate to viagra Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, alternate to viagra two touchdowns, alternate to viagra” Lloyd said. Alternate to viagra “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, alternate to viagra and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Alternate to viagra We just keep working at it, alternate to viagra 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. Alternate to viagra We’re always trying to make those improvements. Alternate to viagra 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, alternate to viagra Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, alternate to viagra which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, alternate to viagra448 yards. Alternate to viagra That number appears safe, alternate to viagra barring an exceptional second half, alternate to viagra but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, alternate to viagra 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. Alternate to viagra It could be a different standout every week, alternate to viagra either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

Targeted 69 times this season, alternate to viagra Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Alternate to viagra What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, alternate to viagra working mostly on the outside, alternate to viagra 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, alternate to viagra when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Alternate to viagra Impressive, alternate to viagra but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, alternate to viagra when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

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