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

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

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

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

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

“It was two catches, order cheap carafate two touchdowns, order cheap carafate” Lloyd said. Order cheap carafate “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 carafate but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Order cheap carafate Halfway into his first season, order cheap carafate it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, order cheap carafate and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order cheap carafate We just keep working at it, order cheap carafate 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 carafate We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order cheap carafate 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 carafate Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order cheap carafate which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order cheap carafate448 yards. Order cheap carafate That number appears safe, order cheap carafate barring an exceptional second half, order cheap carafate but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order cheap carafate 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 carafate It could be a different standout every week, order cheap carafate either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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