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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order cheap gluta pep and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order cheap gluta pep We just keep working at it, order cheap gluta pep 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 gluta pep We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order cheap gluta pep 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 gluta pep Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order cheap gluta pep which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order cheap gluta pep448 yards. Order cheap gluta pep That number appears safe, order cheap gluta pep barring an exceptional second half, order cheap gluta pep but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order cheap gluta pep 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 gluta pep It could be a different standout every week, order cheap gluta pep either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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