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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find strattera online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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