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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount casodex and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount casodex We just keep working at it, order discount casodex 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 casodex We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount casodex 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 casodex Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount casodex which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount casodex448 yards. Order discount casodex That number appears safe, order discount casodex barring an exceptional second half, order discount casodex but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount casodex 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 casodex It could be a different standout every week, order discount casodex either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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