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, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test signed to a three-year, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test $12 million deal in the offseason, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test eight the next week, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 80-yard game at Seattle, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Both, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test though, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test went for touchdowns, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 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, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test” he said.

True, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test but both went for touchdowns. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test two touchdowns, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test” Lloyd said. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Halfway into his first season, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test in the spring, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test ‘All right, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test we got it, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test’ because we still have so much work to do, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test” Lloyd said. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test “We’re working hard to improve on that, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test week by week and day by day, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test but it’s a group effort, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test We just keep working at it, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 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. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 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, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test448 yards. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test That number appears safe, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test barring an exceptional second half, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 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. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test It could be a different standout every week, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test I’ve never been declared a No. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 1 target, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test where it’s clear, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test” said Lloyd, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test who is in his 10th season, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test but is already on his sixth organization. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test “Coming to a team like this, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test it’s natural for me, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test I’ll be available for him. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test They want me to be open, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test working mostly on the outside, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test 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, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test Impressive, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test they mean more, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test coming into November and December, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test” Lloyd said. Buy alco screen 02 alcohol test “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test so you have stuff you can look forward to, buy alco screen 02 alcohol test stuff that you can improve on.”
