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

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

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

“It was two catches, find omnicef cod” he said.

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

“It was two catches, find omnicef cod two touchdowns, find omnicef cod” Lloyd said. Find omnicef cod “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, find omnicef cod but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Find omnicef cod Halfway into his first season, find omnicef cod it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, find omnicef cod and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Find omnicef cod We just keep working at it, find omnicef cod 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 omnicef cod We’re always trying to make those improvements. Find omnicef cod 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 omnicef cod Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, find omnicef cod which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, find omnicef cod448 yards. Find omnicef cod That number appears safe, find omnicef cod barring an exceptional second half, find omnicef cod but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, find omnicef cod 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 omnicef cod It could be a different standout every week, find omnicef cod either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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