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

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

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

“It was two catches, digestive support dogs in us” he said.

True, digestive support dogs in us but both went for touchdowns. Digestive support dogs in us Won’t that help his confidence?

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

For Lloyd, digestive support dogs in us and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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