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

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

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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy no rx nirdosh two touchdowns, buy no rx nirdosh” Lloyd said. Buy no rx nirdosh “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 nirdosh but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Buy no rx nirdosh Halfway into his first season, buy no rx nirdosh it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, buy no rx nirdosh and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy no rx nirdosh We just keep working at it, buy no rx nirdosh 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 nirdosh We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy no rx nirdosh 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 nirdosh Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy no rx nirdosh which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy no rx nirdosh448 yards. Buy no rx nirdosh That number appears safe, buy no rx nirdosh barring an exceptional second half, buy no rx nirdosh but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy no rx nirdosh 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 nirdosh It could be a different standout every week, buy no rx nirdosh either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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