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

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

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

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

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

“It was two catches, find no rx speman two touchdowns, find no rx speman” Lloyd said. Find no rx speman “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 speman but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Find no rx speman Halfway into his first season, find no rx speman it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, find no rx speman and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find no rx speman We just keep working at it, find no rx speman 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 speman We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find no rx speman 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 speman Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find no rx speman which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find no rx speman448 yards. Find no rx speman That number appears safe, find no rx speman barring an exceptional second half, find no rx speman but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find no rx speman 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 speman It could be a different standout every week, find no rx speman either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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