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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order zyrtec cod and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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