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

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

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

“It was two catches, prometrium online review” he said.

True, prometrium online review but both went for touchdowns. Prometrium online review Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, prometrium online review two touchdowns, prometrium online review” Lloyd said. Prometrium 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, prometrium online review but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Prometrium online review Halfway into his first season, prometrium online review it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, prometrium online review and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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