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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy sumycin cod and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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