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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, discount probalan online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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