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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy discount bactroban and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy discount bactroban We just keep working at it, buy discount bactroban 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 bactroban We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy discount bactroban 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 bactroban Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy discount bactroban which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy discount bactroban448 yards. Buy discount bactroban That number appears safe, buy discount bactroban barring an exceptional second half, buy discount bactroban but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy discount bactroban 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 bactroban It could be a different standout every week, buy discount bactroban either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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