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

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

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

“It was two catches, ortho tri cyclen online review” he said.

True, ortho tri cyclen online review but both went for touchdowns. Ortho tri cyclen online review Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, ortho tri cyclen online review two touchdowns, ortho tri cyclen online review” Lloyd said. Ortho tri cyclen online review “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, ortho tri cyclen online review but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Ortho tri cyclen online review Halfway into his first season, ortho tri cyclen online review it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, ortho tri cyclen online review and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Ortho tri cyclen online review We just keep working at it, ortho tri cyclen online review 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. Ortho tri cyclen online review We’re always trying to make those improvements. Ortho tri cyclen online review 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, ortho tri cyclen online review Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, ortho tri cyclen online review which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, ortho tri cyclen online review448 yards. Ortho tri cyclen online review That number appears safe, ortho tri cyclen online review barring an exceptional second half, ortho tri cyclen online review but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, ortho tri cyclen online review 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. Ortho tri cyclen online review It could be a different standout every week, ortho tri cyclen online review either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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