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

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

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

“It was two catches, order home cholesterol test” he said.

True, order home cholesterol test but both went for touchdowns. Order home cholesterol test Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, order home cholesterol test two touchdowns, order home cholesterol test” Lloyd said. Order home cholesterol test “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, order home cholesterol test and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order home cholesterol test We just keep working at it, order home cholesterol test 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 home cholesterol test We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order home cholesterol test 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 home cholesterol test Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order home cholesterol test which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order home cholesterol test448 yards. Order home cholesterol test That number appears safe, order home cholesterol test barring an exceptional second half, order home cholesterol test but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order home cholesterol test 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 home cholesterol test It could be a different standout every week, order home cholesterol test either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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