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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount atrovent and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find discount atrovent We just keep working at it, find discount atrovent 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 atrovent We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find discount atrovent 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 atrovent Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find discount atrovent which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find discount atrovent448 yards. Find discount atrovent That number appears safe, find discount atrovent barring an exceptional second half, find discount atrovent but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find discount atrovent 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 atrovent It could be a different standout every week, find discount atrovent either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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