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

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

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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy cheap soothenol two touchdowns, buy cheap soothenol” Lloyd said. Buy cheap soothenol “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 soothenol but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Buy cheap soothenol Halfway into his first season, buy cheap soothenol it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, buy cheap soothenol and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy cheap soothenol We just keep working at it, buy cheap soothenol 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 soothenol We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy cheap soothenol 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 soothenol Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy cheap soothenol which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy cheap soothenol448 yards. Buy cheap soothenol That number appears safe, buy cheap soothenol barring an exceptional second half, buy cheap soothenol but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy cheap soothenol 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 soothenol It could be a different standout every week, buy cheap soothenol either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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