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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy discount panmycin and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy discount panmycin We just keep working at it, buy discount panmycin 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 panmycin We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy discount panmycin 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 panmycin Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy discount panmycin which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy discount panmycin448 yards. Buy discount panmycin That number appears safe, buy discount panmycin barring an exceptional second half, buy discount panmycin but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy discount panmycin 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 panmycin It could be a different standout every week, buy discount panmycin either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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