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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy msm in canada” he said.

True, buy msm in canada but both went for touchdowns. Buy msm in canada Won’t that help his confidence?

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

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

For Lloyd, buy msm in canada and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy msm in canada We just keep working at it, buy msm in canada 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 msm in canada We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy msm in canada 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 msm in canada Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy msm in canada which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy msm in canada448 yards. Buy msm in canada That number appears safe, buy msm in canada barring an exceptional second half, buy msm in canada but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy msm in canada 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 msm in canada It could be a different standout every week, buy msm in canada either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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