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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount maxaman online and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount maxaman online We just keep working at it, order discount maxaman online 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 maxaman online We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount maxaman online 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 maxaman online Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount maxaman online which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount maxaman online448 yards. Order discount maxaman online That number appears safe, order discount maxaman online barring an exceptional second half, order discount maxaman online but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount maxaman online 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 maxaman online It could be a different standout every week, order discount maxaman online either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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