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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy amaryl cod” he said.

True, buy amaryl cod but both went for touchdowns. Buy amaryl cod Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, buy amaryl cod two touchdowns, buy amaryl cod” Lloyd said. Buy amaryl cod “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, buy amaryl cod and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy amaryl cod We just keep working at it, buy amaryl cod 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 amaryl cod We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy amaryl cod 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 amaryl cod Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy amaryl cod which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy amaryl cod448 yards. Buy amaryl cod That number appears safe, buy amaryl cod barring an exceptional second half, buy amaryl cod but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy amaryl cod 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 amaryl cod It could be a different standout every week, buy amaryl cod either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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