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

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

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

“It was two catches, order hip & joint chews large dogs” he said.

True, order hip & joint chews large dogs but both went for touchdowns. Order hip & joint chews large dogs Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, order hip & joint chews large dogs two touchdowns, order hip & joint chews large dogs” Lloyd said. Order hip & joint chews large dogs “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, order hip & joint chews large dogs but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Order hip & joint chews large dogs Halfway into his first season, order hip & joint chews large dogs it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, order hip & joint chews large dogs and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order hip & joint chews large dogs We just keep working at it, order hip & joint chews large dogs 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 hip & joint chews large dogs We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order hip & joint chews large dogs 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 hip & joint chews large dogs Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order hip & joint chews large dogs which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order hip & joint chews large dogs448 yards. Order hip & joint chews large dogs That number appears safe, order hip & joint chews large dogs barring an exceptional second half, order hip & joint chews large dogs but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order hip & joint chews large dogs 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 hip & joint chews large dogs It could be a different standout every week, order hip & joint chews large dogs either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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