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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount fml forte online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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