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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy imuran cod and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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