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

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

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

“It was two catches, order cheap bactroban” he said.

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order cheap bactroban and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order cheap bactroban We just keep working at it, order cheap bactroban 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 cheap bactroban We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order cheap bactroban 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 cheap bactroban Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order cheap bactroban which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order cheap bactroban448 yards. Order cheap bactroban That number appears safe, order cheap bactroban barring an exceptional second half, order cheap bactroban but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order cheap bactroban 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 cheap bactroban It could be a different standout every week, order cheap bactroban either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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