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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order imuran online and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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