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

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

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

“It was two catches, natural viagra” he said.

True, natural viagra but both went for touchdowns. Natural viagra Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, natural viagra two touchdowns, natural viagra” Lloyd said. Natural viagra “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, natural viagra and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Natural viagra We just keep working at it, natural viagra 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. Natural viagra We’re always trying to make those improvements. Natural viagra 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, natural viagra Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, natural viagra which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, natural viagra448 yards. Natural viagra That number appears safe, natural viagra barring an exceptional second half, natural viagra but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, natural viagra 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. Natural viagra It could be a different standout every week, natural viagra either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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