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 no rx avalide signed to a three-year, find no rx avalide $12 million deal in the offseason, find no rx avalide began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, find no rx avalide eight the next week, find no rx avalide then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, find no rx avalide 80-yard game at Seattle, find no rx avalide Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Find no rx avalide He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, find no rx avalide including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Find no rx avalide 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Find no rx avalide Both, find no rx avalide though, find no rx avalide went for touchdowns, find no rx avalide 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 no rx avalide can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, find no rx avalide” he said.

True, find no rx avalide but both went for touchdowns. Find no rx avalide Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, find no rx avalide two touchdowns, find no rx avalide” Lloyd said. Find no rx avalide “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, find no rx avalide but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Find no rx avalide Halfway into his first season, find no rx avalide it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, find no rx avalide and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, find no rx avalide in the spring, find no rx avalide that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, find no rx avalide ‘All right, find no rx avalide we got it, find no rx avalide’ because we still have so much work to do, find no rx avalide” Lloyd said. Find no rx avalide “We’re working hard to improve on that, find no rx avalide week by week and day by day, find no rx avalide but it’s a group effort, find no rx avalide and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find no rx avalide We just keep working at it, find no rx avalide 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 no rx avalide We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find no rx avalide 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 no rx avalide Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find no rx avalide which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find no rx avalide448 yards. Find no rx avalide That number appears safe, find no rx avalide barring an exceptional second half, find no rx avalide but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find no rx avalide 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 no rx avalide It could be a different standout every week, find no rx avalide either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

Targeted 69 times this season, find no rx avalide Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Find no rx avalide What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, find no rx avalide working mostly on the outside, find no rx avalide 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 no rx avalide when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Find no rx avalide Impressive, find no rx avalide but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, find no rx avalide when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, find no rx avalide they mean more, find no rx avalide they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, find no rx avalide coming into November and December, find no rx avalide” Lloyd said. Find no rx avalide “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, find no rx avalide so you have stuff you can look forward to, find no rx avalide stuff that you can improve on.”
