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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy stress relief in us” he said.

True, buy stress relief in us but both went for touchdowns. Buy stress relief in us Won’t that help his confidence?

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

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

For Lloyd, buy stress relief in us and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy stress relief in us We just keep working at it, buy stress relief in us 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 stress relief in us We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy stress relief in us 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 stress relief in us Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy stress relief in us which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy stress relief in us448 yards. Buy stress relief in us That number appears safe, buy stress relief in us barring an exceptional second half, buy stress relief in us but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy stress relief in us 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 stress relief in us It could be a different standout every week, buy stress relief in us either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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