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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount avodart and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount avodart We just keep working at it, order discount avodart 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 avodart We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount avodart 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 avodart Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount avodart which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount avodart448 yards. Order discount avodart That number appears safe, order discount avodart barring an exceptional second half, order discount avodart but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount avodart 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 avodart It could be a different standout every week, order discount avodart either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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