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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy vantin online” he said.

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

“It was two catches, buy vantin online two touchdowns, buy vantin online” Lloyd said. Buy vantin online “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, buy vantin online and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy vantin online We just keep working at it, buy vantin online 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 vantin online We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy vantin online 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 vantin online Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy vantin online which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy vantin online448 yards. Buy vantin online That number appears safe, buy vantin online barring an exceptional second half, buy vantin online but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy vantin online 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 vantin online It could be a different standout every week, buy vantin online either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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