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

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

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

“It was two catches, cheap toprol xl online” he said.

True, cheap toprol xl online but both went for touchdowns. Cheap toprol xl online Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, cheap toprol xl online two touchdowns, cheap toprol xl online” Lloyd said. Cheap toprol xl online “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, cheap toprol xl online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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