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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount depo medrol and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount depo medrol We just keep working at it, order discount depo medrol 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 depo medrol We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount depo medrol 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 depo medrol Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount depo medrol which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount depo medrol448 yards. Order discount depo medrol That number appears safe, order discount depo medrol barring an exceptional second half, order discount depo medrol but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount depo medrol 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 depo medrol It could be a different standout every week, order discount depo medrol either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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