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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy discount arimidex” he said.

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy discount arimidex and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy discount arimidex We just keep working at it, buy discount arimidex 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 discount arimidex We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy discount arimidex 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 discount arimidex Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy discount arimidex which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy discount arimidex448 yards. Buy discount arimidex That number appears safe, buy discount arimidex barring an exceptional second half, buy discount arimidex but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy discount arimidex 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 discount arimidex It could be a different standout every week, buy discount arimidex either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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