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 no rx toprol xl signed to a three-year, order no rx toprol xl $12 million deal in the offseason, order no rx toprol xl began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, order no rx toprol xl eight the next week, order no rx toprol xl then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, order no rx toprol xl 80-yard game at Seattle, order no rx toprol xl Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Order no rx toprol xl He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, order no rx toprol xl including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Order no rx toprol xl 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Order no rx toprol xl Both, order no rx toprol xl though, order no rx toprol xl went for touchdowns, order no rx toprol xl 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 no rx toprol xl can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, order no rx toprol xl” he said.

True, order no rx toprol xl but both went for touchdowns. Order no rx toprol xl Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, order no rx toprol xl two touchdowns, order no rx toprol xl” Lloyd said. Order no rx toprol xl “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, order no rx toprol xl but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Order no rx toprol xl Halfway into his first season, order no rx toprol xl it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, order no rx toprol xl and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, order no rx toprol xl in the spring, order no rx toprol xl that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, order no rx toprol xl ‘All right, order no rx toprol xl we got it, order no rx toprol xl’ because we still have so much work to do, order no rx toprol xl” Lloyd said. Order no rx toprol xl “We’re working hard to improve on that, order no rx toprol xl week by week and day by day, order no rx toprol xl but it’s a group effort, order no rx toprol xl and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order no rx toprol xl We just keep working at it, order no rx toprol xl 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 no rx toprol xl We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order no rx toprol xl 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 no rx toprol xl Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order no rx toprol xl which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order no rx toprol xl448 yards. Order no rx toprol xl That number appears safe, order no rx toprol xl barring an exceptional second half, order no rx toprol xl but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order no rx toprol xl 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 no rx toprol xl It could be a different standout every week, order no rx toprol xl either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

Targeted 69 times this season, order no rx toprol xl Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Order no rx toprol xl What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, order no rx toprol xl working mostly on the outside, order no rx toprol xl 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 no rx toprol xl when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Order no rx toprol xl Impressive, order no rx toprol xl but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, order no rx toprol xl when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, order no rx toprol xl they mean more, order no rx toprol xl they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, order no rx toprol xl coming into November and December, order no rx toprol xl” Lloyd said. Order no rx toprol xl “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, order no rx toprol xl so you have stuff you can look forward to, order no rx toprol xl stuff that you can improve on.”
