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

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

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

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

True, find discount atacand online but both went for touchdowns. Find discount atacand online Won’t that help his confidence?

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount atacand online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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