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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy discount prilosec and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy discount prilosec We just keep working at it, buy discount prilosec 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 prilosec We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy discount prilosec 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 prilosec Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy discount prilosec which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy discount prilosec448 yards. Buy discount prilosec That number appears safe, buy discount prilosec barring an exceptional second half, buy discount prilosec but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy discount prilosec 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 prilosec It could be a different standout every week, buy discount prilosec either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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