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

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

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

“It was two catches, discount shuddha guggulu” he said.

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

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

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

For Lloyd, discount shuddha guggulu and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Discount shuddha guggulu We just keep working at it, discount shuddha guggulu 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 shuddha guggulu We’re always trying to make those improvements. Discount shuddha guggulu 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 shuddha guggulu Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, discount shuddha guggulu which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, discount shuddha guggulu448 yards. Discount shuddha guggulu That number appears safe, discount shuddha guggulu barring an exceptional second half, discount shuddha guggulu but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, discount shuddha guggulu 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 shuddha guggulu It could be a different standout every week, discount shuddha guggulu either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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