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 omega 3 1 online signed to a three-year, find omega 3 1 online $12 million deal in the offseason, find omega 3 1 online began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, find omega 3 1 online eight the next week, find omega 3 1 online then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, find omega 3 1 online 80-yard game at Seattle, find omega 3 1 online Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Find omega 3 1 online He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, find omega 3 1 online including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Find omega 3 1 online 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Find omega 3 1 online Both, find omega 3 1 online though, find omega 3 1 online went for touchdowns, find omega 3 1 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 omega 3 1 online can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, find omega 3 1 online” he said.

True, find omega 3 1 online but both went for touchdowns. Find omega 3 1 online Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, find omega 3 1 online two touchdowns, find omega 3 1 online” Lloyd said. Find omega 3 1 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 omega 3 1 online but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Find omega 3 1 online Halfway into his first season, find omega 3 1 online it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, find omega 3 1 online and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, find omega 3 1 online in the spring, find omega 3 1 online that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, find omega 3 1 online ‘All right, find omega 3 1 online we got it, find omega 3 1 online’ because we still have so much work to do, find omega 3 1 online” Lloyd said. Find omega 3 1 online “We’re working hard to improve on that, find omega 3 1 online week by week and day by day, find omega 3 1 online but it’s a group effort, find omega 3 1 online and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find omega 3 1 online We just keep working at it, find omega 3 1 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 omega 3 1 online We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find omega 3 1 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 omega 3 1 online Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find omega 3 1 online which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find omega 3 1 online448 yards. Find omega 3 1 online That number appears safe, find omega 3 1 online barring an exceptional second half, find omega 3 1 online but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find omega 3 1 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 omega 3 1 online It could be a different standout every week, find omega 3 1 online either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, find omega 3 1 online regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, find omega 3 1 online I’ve never been declared a No. Find omega 3 1 online 1 target, find omega 3 1 online like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, find omega 3 1 online where it’s clear, find omega 3 1 online” said Lloyd, find omega 3 1 online who is in his 10th season, find omega 3 1 online but is already on his sixth organization. Find omega 3 1 online “Coming to a team like this, find omega 3 1 online it’s natural for me, find omega 3 1 online to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, find omega 3 1 online I’ll be available for him. Find omega 3 1 online They want me to be open, find omega 3 1 online and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, find omega 3 1 online Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Find omega 3 1 online What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, find omega 3 1 online working mostly on the outside, find omega 3 1 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 omega 3 1 online when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Find omega 3 1 online Impressive, find omega 3 1 online but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, find omega 3 1 online when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, find omega 3 1 online they mean more, find omega 3 1 online they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, find omega 3 1 online coming into November and December, find omega 3 1 online” Lloyd said. Find omega 3 1 online “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, find omega 3 1 online so you have stuff you can look forward to, find omega 3 1 online stuff that you can improve on.”
