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

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

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

“It was two catches, medi first hydrocortisone” he said.

True, medi first hydrocortisone but both went for touchdowns. Medi first hydrocortisone Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, medi first hydrocortisone two touchdowns, medi first hydrocortisone” Lloyd said. Medi first hydrocortisone “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, medi first hydrocortisone and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Medi first hydrocortisone We just keep working at it, medi first hydrocortisone 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. Medi first hydrocortisone We’re always trying to make those improvements. Medi first hydrocortisone 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, medi first hydrocortisone Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, medi first hydrocortisone which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, medi first hydrocortisone448 yards. Medi first hydrocortisone That number appears safe, medi first hydrocortisone barring an exceptional second half, medi first hydrocortisone but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, medi first hydrocortisone 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. Medi first hydrocortisone It could be a different standout every week, medi first hydrocortisone either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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