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

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

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

“It was two catches, order amaryl cod” he said.

True, order amaryl cod but both went for touchdowns. Order amaryl cod Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, order amaryl cod two touchdowns, order amaryl cod” Lloyd said. Order amaryl cod “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, order amaryl cod and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order amaryl cod We just keep working at it, order amaryl cod 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. Order amaryl cod We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order amaryl cod 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, order amaryl cod Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order amaryl cod which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order amaryl cod448 yards. Order amaryl cod That number appears safe, order amaryl cod barring an exceptional second half, order amaryl cod but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order amaryl cod 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. Order amaryl cod It could be a different standout every week, order amaryl cod either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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