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

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

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

“It was two catches, discount mexitil online” he said.

True, discount mexitil online but both went for touchdowns. Discount mexitil online Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, discount mexitil online two touchdowns, discount mexitil online” Lloyd said. Discount mexitil 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 mexitil online but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Discount mexitil online Halfway into his first season, discount mexitil online it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, discount mexitil online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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