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, no rx neurontin signed to a three-year, no rx neurontin $12 million deal in the offseason, no rx neurontin began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, no rx neurontin eight the next week, no rx neurontin then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, no rx neurontin 80-yard game at Seattle, no rx neurontin Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. No rx neurontin He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, no rx neurontin including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. No rx neurontin 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. No rx neurontin Both, no rx neurontin though, no rx neurontin went for touchdowns, no rx neurontin 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, no rx neurontin can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, no rx neurontin” he said.

True, no rx neurontin but both went for touchdowns. No rx neurontin Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, no rx neurontin two touchdowns, no rx neurontin” Lloyd said. No rx neurontin “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, no rx neurontin but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. No rx neurontin Halfway into his first season, no rx neurontin it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, no rx neurontin and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, no rx neurontin in the spring, no rx neurontin that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, no rx neurontin ‘All right, no rx neurontin we got it, no rx neurontin’ because we still have so much work to do, no rx neurontin” Lloyd said. No rx neurontin “We’re working hard to improve on that, no rx neurontin week by week and day by day, no rx neurontin but it’s a group effort, no rx neurontin and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. No rx neurontin We just keep working at it, no rx neurontin 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. No rx neurontin We’re always trying to make those improvements. No rx neurontin 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, no rx neurontin Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, no rx neurontin which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, no rx neurontin448 yards. No rx neurontin That number appears safe, no rx neurontin barring an exceptional second half, no rx neurontin but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, no rx neurontin 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. No rx neurontin It could be a different standout every week, no rx neurontin either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

Targeted 69 times this season, no rx neurontin Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. No rx neurontin What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, no rx neurontin working mostly on the outside, no rx neurontin 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, no rx neurontin when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. No rx neurontin Impressive, no rx neurontin but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, no rx neurontin when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, no rx neurontin they mean more, no rx neurontin they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, no rx neurontin coming into November and December, no rx neurontin” Lloyd said. No rx neurontin “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, no rx neurontin so you have stuff you can look forward to, no rx neurontin stuff that you can improve on.”
