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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount sarafem and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find discount sarafem We just keep working at it, find discount sarafem 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 sarafem We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find discount sarafem 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 sarafem Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find discount sarafem which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find discount sarafem448 yards. Find discount sarafem That number appears safe, find discount sarafem barring an exceptional second half, find discount sarafem but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find discount sarafem 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 sarafem It could be a different standout every week, find discount sarafem either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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