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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy discount snoroff and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy discount snoroff We just keep working at it, buy discount snoroff 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 snoroff We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy discount snoroff 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 snoroff Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy discount snoroff which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy discount snoroff448 yards. Buy discount snoroff That number appears safe, buy discount snoroff barring an exceptional second half, buy discount snoroff but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy discount snoroff 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 snoroff It could be a different standout every week, buy discount snoroff either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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