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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount anafranil and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount anafranil We just keep working at it, order discount anafranil 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 anafranil We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount anafranil 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 anafranil Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount anafranil which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount anafranil448 yards. Order discount anafranil That number appears safe, order discount anafranil barring an exceptional second half, order discount anafranil but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount anafranil 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 anafranil It could be a different standout every week, order discount anafranil either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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