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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order testo rex cod and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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