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

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

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

“It was two catches, snoroff overnight delivery” he said.

True, snoroff overnight delivery but both went for touchdowns. Snoroff overnight delivery Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, snoroff overnight delivery two touchdowns, snoroff overnight delivery” Lloyd said. Snoroff overnight delivery “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, snoroff overnight delivery and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Snoroff overnight delivery We just keep working at it, snoroff overnight delivery 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. Snoroff overnight delivery We’re always trying to make those improvements. Snoroff overnight delivery 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, snoroff overnight delivery Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, snoroff overnight delivery which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, snoroff overnight delivery448 yards. Snoroff overnight delivery That number appears safe, snoroff overnight delivery barring an exceptional second half, snoroff overnight delivery but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, snoroff overnight delivery 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. Snoroff overnight delivery It could be a different standout every week, snoroff overnight delivery either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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