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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount pepcid and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order discount pepcid We just keep working at it, order discount pepcid 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 pepcid We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order discount pepcid 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 pepcid Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order discount pepcid which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order discount pepcid448 yards. Order discount pepcid That number appears safe, order discount pepcid barring an exceptional second half, order discount pepcid but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order discount pepcid 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 pepcid It could be a different standout every week, order discount pepcid either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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