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

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

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

“It was two catches, menopause gum in us” he said.

True, menopause gum in us but both went for touchdowns. Menopause gum in us Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, menopause gum in us two touchdowns, menopause gum in us” Lloyd said. Menopause gum in us “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, menopause gum in us and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Menopause gum in us We just keep working at it, menopause gum in us 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. Menopause gum in us We’re always trying to make those improvements. Menopause gum in us 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, menopause gum in us Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, menopause gum in us which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, menopause gum in us448 yards. Menopause gum in us That number appears safe, menopause gum in us barring an exceptional second half, menopause gum in us but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, menopause gum in us 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. Menopause gum in us It could be a different standout every week, menopause gum in us either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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