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

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

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

“It was two catches, cialis headaches” he said.

True, cialis headaches but both went for touchdowns. Cialis headaches Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, cialis headaches two touchdowns, cialis headaches” Lloyd said. Cialis headaches “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, cialis headaches and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Cialis headaches We just keep working at it, cialis headaches 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. Cialis headaches We’re always trying to make those improvements. Cialis headaches 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, cialis headaches Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, cialis headaches which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, cialis headaches448 yards. Cialis headaches That number appears safe, cialis headaches barring an exceptional second half, cialis headaches but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, cialis headaches 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. Cialis headaches It could be a different standout every week, cialis headaches either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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