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

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

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

“It was two catches, antiox cats free sample” he said.

True, antiox cats free sample but both went for touchdowns. Antiox cats free sample Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, antiox cats free sample two touchdowns, antiox cats free sample” Lloyd said. Antiox cats free sample “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, antiox cats free sample but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Antiox cats free sample Halfway into his first season, antiox cats free sample it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, antiox cats free sample and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Antiox cats free sample We just keep working at it, antiox cats free sample 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. Antiox cats free sample We’re always trying to make those improvements. Antiox cats free sample 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, antiox cats free sample Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, antiox cats free sample which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, antiox cats free sample448 yards. Antiox cats free sample That number appears safe, antiox cats free sample barring an exceptional second half, antiox cats free sample but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, antiox cats free sample 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. Antiox cats free sample It could be a different standout every week, antiox cats free sample either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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