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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy cheap calan online” he said.

True, buy cheap calan online but both went for touchdowns. Buy cheap calan online Won’t that help his confidence?

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

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

For Lloyd, buy cheap calan online and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy cheap calan online We just keep working at it, buy cheap calan online 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 cheap calan online We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy cheap calan online 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 cheap calan online Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy cheap calan online which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy cheap calan online448 yards. Buy cheap calan online That number appears safe, buy cheap calan online barring an exceptional second half, buy cheap calan online but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy cheap calan online 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 cheap calan online It could be a different standout every week, buy cheap calan online either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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