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

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

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

“It was two catches, find ditropan online” he said.

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

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

For Lloyd, find ditropan online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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