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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order cheap grifulvin v and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order cheap grifulvin v We just keep working at it, order cheap grifulvin v 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 grifulvin v We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order cheap grifulvin v 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 grifulvin v Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order cheap grifulvin v which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order cheap grifulvin v448 yards. Order cheap grifulvin v That number appears safe, order cheap grifulvin v barring an exceptional second half, order cheap grifulvin v but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order cheap grifulvin v 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 grifulvin v It could be a different standout every week, order cheap grifulvin v either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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