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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order cheap clonidine and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order cheap clonidine We just keep working at it, order cheap clonidine 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 clonidine We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order cheap clonidine 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 clonidine Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order cheap clonidine which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order cheap clonidine448 yards. Order cheap clonidine That number appears safe, order cheap clonidine barring an exceptional second half, order cheap clonidine but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order cheap clonidine 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 clonidine It could be a different standout every week, order cheap clonidine either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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