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 no rx florinef signed to a three-year, buy no rx florinef $12 million deal in the offseason, buy no rx florinef began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, buy no rx florinef eight the next week, buy no rx florinef then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, buy no rx florinef 80-yard game at Seattle, buy no rx florinef Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Buy no rx florinef He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, buy no rx florinef including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Buy no rx florinef 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Buy no rx florinef Both, buy no rx florinef though, buy no rx florinef went for touchdowns, buy no rx florinef 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 no rx florinef can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, buy no rx florinef” he said.

True, buy no rx florinef but both went for touchdowns. Buy no rx florinef Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, buy no rx florinef two touchdowns, buy no rx florinef” Lloyd said. Buy no rx florinef “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, buy no rx florinef but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Buy no rx florinef Halfway into his first season, buy no rx florinef it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, buy no rx florinef and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, buy no rx florinef in the spring, buy no rx florinef that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, buy no rx florinef ‘All right, buy no rx florinef we got it, buy no rx florinef’ because we still have so much work to do, buy no rx florinef” Lloyd said. Buy no rx florinef “We’re working hard to improve on that, buy no rx florinef week by week and day by day, buy no rx florinef but it’s a group effort, buy no rx florinef and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy no rx florinef We just keep working at it, buy no rx florinef 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 no rx florinef We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy no rx florinef 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 no rx florinef Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy no rx florinef which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy no rx florinef448 yards. Buy no rx florinef That number appears safe, buy no rx florinef barring an exceptional second half, buy no rx florinef but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy no rx florinef 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 no rx florinef It could be a different standout every week, buy no rx florinef either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

Targeted 69 times this season, buy no rx florinef Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Buy no rx florinef What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, buy no rx florinef working mostly on the outside, buy no rx florinef 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 no rx florinef when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Buy no rx florinef Impressive, buy no rx florinef but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, buy no rx florinef when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, buy no rx florinef they mean more, buy no rx florinef they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, buy no rx florinef coming into November and December, buy no rx florinef” Lloyd said. Buy no rx florinef “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, buy no rx florinef so you have stuff you can look forward to, buy no rx florinef stuff that you can improve on.”
