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

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

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

“It was two catches, discount ortho tri cyclen” he said.

True, discount ortho tri cyclen but both went for touchdowns. Discount ortho tri cyclen Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, discount ortho tri cyclen two touchdowns, discount ortho tri cyclen” Lloyd said. Discount ortho tri cyclen “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, discount ortho tri cyclen and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Discount ortho tri cyclen We just keep working at it, discount ortho tri cyclen 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 ortho tri cyclen We’re always trying to make those improvements. Discount ortho tri cyclen 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 ortho tri cyclen Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, discount ortho tri cyclen which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, discount ortho tri cyclen448 yards. Discount ortho tri cyclen That number appears safe, discount ortho tri cyclen barring an exceptional second half, discount ortho tri cyclen but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, discount ortho tri cyclen 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 ortho tri cyclen It could be a different standout every week, discount ortho tri cyclen either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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