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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order discount zerit online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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