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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount proventil and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find discount proventil We just keep working at it, find discount proventil 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 proventil We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find discount proventil 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 proventil Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find discount proventil which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find discount proventil448 yards. Find discount proventil That number appears safe, find discount proventil barring an exceptional second half, find discount proventil but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find discount proventil 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 proventil It could be a different standout every week, find discount proventil either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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