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

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

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

“It was two catches, prescription cialis” he said.

True, prescription cialis but both went for touchdowns. Prescription cialis Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, prescription cialis two touchdowns, prescription cialis” Lloyd said. Prescription cialis “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, prescription cialis and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Prescription cialis We just keep working at it, prescription cialis 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. Prescription cialis We’re always trying to make those improvements. Prescription cialis 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, prescription cialis Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, prescription cialis which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, prescription cialis448 yards. Prescription cialis That number appears safe, prescription cialis barring an exceptional second half, prescription cialis but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, prescription cialis 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. Prescription cialis It could be a different standout every week, prescription cialis either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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