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

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

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Discount hip & joint chews small dogs online Both, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online though, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online went for touchdowns, discount hip & joint chews small dogs 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, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online” he said.

True, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online but both went for touchdowns. Discount hip & joint chews small dogs online Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online two touchdowns, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online” Lloyd said. Discount hip & joint chews small dogs online “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Discount hip & joint chews small dogs online Halfway into his first season, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, discount hip & joint chews small dogs online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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