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, rogaine 2% free sample signed to a three-year, rogaine 2% free sample $12 million deal in the offseason, rogaine 2% free sample began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, rogaine 2% free sample eight the next week, rogaine 2% free sample then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, rogaine 2% free sample 80-yard game at Seattle, rogaine 2% free sample Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Rogaine 2% free sample He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, rogaine 2% free sample including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Rogaine 2% free sample 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Rogaine 2% free sample Both, rogaine 2% free sample though, rogaine 2% free sample went for touchdowns, rogaine 2% free sample 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, rogaine 2% free sample can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, rogaine 2% free sample” he said.

True, rogaine 2% free sample but both went for touchdowns. Rogaine 2% free sample Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, rogaine 2% free sample two touchdowns, rogaine 2% free sample” Lloyd said. Rogaine 2% free sample “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, rogaine 2% free sample but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Rogaine 2% free sample Halfway into his first season, rogaine 2% free sample it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, rogaine 2% free sample and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, rogaine 2% free sample in the spring, rogaine 2% free sample that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, rogaine 2% free sample ‘All right, rogaine 2% free sample we got it, rogaine 2% free sample’ because we still have so much work to do, rogaine 2% free sample” Lloyd said. Rogaine 2% free sample “We’re working hard to improve on that, rogaine 2% free sample week by week and day by day, rogaine 2% free sample but it’s a group effort, rogaine 2% free sample and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Rogaine 2% free sample We just keep working at it, rogaine 2% free sample 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. Rogaine 2% free sample We’re always trying to make those improvements. Rogaine 2% free sample 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, rogaine 2% free sample Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, rogaine 2% free sample which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, rogaine 2% free sample448 yards. Rogaine 2% free sample That number appears safe, rogaine 2% free sample barring an exceptional second half, rogaine 2% free sample but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, rogaine 2% free sample 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. Rogaine 2% free sample It could be a different standout every week, rogaine 2% free sample either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, rogaine 2% free sample regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, rogaine 2% free sample I’ve never been declared a No. Rogaine 2% free sample 1 target, rogaine 2% free sample like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, rogaine 2% free sample where it’s clear, rogaine 2% free sample” said Lloyd, rogaine 2% free sample who is in his 10th season, rogaine 2% free sample but is already on his sixth organization. Rogaine 2% free sample “Coming to a team like this, rogaine 2% free sample it’s natural for me, rogaine 2% free sample to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, rogaine 2% free sample I’ll be available for him. Rogaine 2% free sample They want me to be open, rogaine 2% free sample and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, rogaine 2% free sample Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Rogaine 2% free sample What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, rogaine 2% free sample working mostly on the outside, rogaine 2% free sample 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, rogaine 2% free sample when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Rogaine 2% free sample Impressive, rogaine 2% free sample but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, rogaine 2% free sample when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, rogaine 2% free sample they mean more, rogaine 2% free sample they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, rogaine 2% free sample coming into November and December, rogaine 2% free sample” Lloyd said. Rogaine 2% free sample “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, rogaine 2% free sample so you have stuff you can look forward to, rogaine 2% free sample stuff that you can improve on.”
