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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, find sustiva online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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