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

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

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

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

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

“It was two catches, find cheap xeloda two touchdowns, find cheap xeloda” Lloyd said. Find cheap xeloda “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 xeloda but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Find cheap xeloda Halfway into his first season, find cheap xeloda it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, find cheap xeloda and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find cheap xeloda We just keep working at it, find cheap xeloda 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 xeloda We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find cheap xeloda 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 xeloda Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find cheap xeloda which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find cheap xeloda448 yards. Find cheap xeloda That number appears safe, find cheap xeloda barring an exceptional second half, find cheap xeloda but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find cheap xeloda 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 xeloda It could be a different standout every week, find cheap xeloda either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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