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

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

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

“It was two catches, order discount advair diskus” he said.

True, order discount advair diskus but both went for touchdowns. Order discount advair diskus Won’t that help his confidence?

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount advair diskus and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount advair diskus We just keep working at it, order discount advair diskus 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 discount advair diskus We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount advair diskus 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 discount advair diskus Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount advair diskus which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount advair diskus448 yards. Order discount advair diskus That number appears safe, order discount advair diskus barring an exceptional second half, order discount advair diskus but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount advair diskus 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 discount advair diskus It could be a different standout every week, order discount advair diskus either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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