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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy exelon cod” he said.

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy exelon cod and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy exelon cod We just keep working at it, buy exelon cod 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 exelon cod We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy exelon cod 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 exelon cod Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy exelon cod which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy exelon cod448 yards. Buy exelon cod That number appears safe, buy exelon cod barring an exceptional second half, buy exelon cod but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy exelon cod 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 exelon cod It could be a different standout every week, buy exelon cod either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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