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

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

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

“It was two catches, order leukeran cod” he said.

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order leukeran cod and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order leukeran cod We just keep working at it, order leukeran cod 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 leukeran cod We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order leukeran cod 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 leukeran cod Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order leukeran cod which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order leukeran cod448 yards. Order leukeran cod That number appears safe, order leukeran cod barring an exceptional second half, order leukeran cod but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order leukeran cod 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 leukeran cod It could be a different standout every week, order leukeran cod either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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