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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find discount tagamet and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find discount tagamet We just keep working at it, find discount tagamet 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 tagamet We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find discount tagamet 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 tagamet Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find discount tagamet which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find discount tagamet448 yards. Find discount tagamet That number appears safe, find discount tagamet barring an exceptional second half, find discount tagamet but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find discount tagamet 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 tagamet It could be a different standout every week, find discount tagamet either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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