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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, buy tulasi in us and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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