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

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

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

“It was two catches, find cheap cordarone” he said.

True, find cheap cordarone but both went for touchdowns. Find cheap cordarone Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, find cheap cordarone two touchdowns, find cheap cordarone” Lloyd said. Find cheap cordarone “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, find cheap cordarone and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find cheap cordarone We just keep working at it, find cheap cordarone 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. Find cheap cordarone We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find cheap cordarone 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, find cheap cordarone Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find cheap cordarone which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find cheap cordarone448 yards. Find cheap cordarone That number appears safe, find cheap cordarone barring an exceptional second half, find cheap cordarone but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find cheap cordarone 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. Find cheap cordarone It could be a different standout every week, find cheap cordarone either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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