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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount mentax online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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