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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount effexor and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find discount effexor We just keep working at it, find discount effexor 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 effexor We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find discount effexor 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 effexor Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find discount effexor which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find discount effexor448 yards. Find discount effexor That number appears safe, find discount effexor barring an exceptional second half, find discount effexor but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find discount effexor 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 effexor It could be a different standout every week, find discount effexor either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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