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

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

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

“It was two catches, protein shampoo extra moisturizing” he said.

True, protein shampoo extra moisturizing but both went for touchdowns. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, protein shampoo extra moisturizing two touchdowns, protein shampoo extra moisturizing” Lloyd said. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, protein shampoo extra moisturizing and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing We just keep working at it, protein shampoo extra moisturizing 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. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing We’re always trying to make those improvements. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing 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, protein shampoo extra moisturizing Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, protein shampoo extra moisturizing which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, protein shampoo extra moisturizing448 yards. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing That number appears safe, protein shampoo extra moisturizing barring an exceptional second half, protein shampoo extra moisturizing but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, protein shampoo extra moisturizing 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. Protein shampoo extra moisturizing It could be a different standout every week, protein shampoo extra moisturizing either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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