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

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

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

“It was two catches, strontium bone maker free sample” he said.

True, strontium bone maker free sample but both went for touchdowns. Strontium bone maker free sample Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, strontium bone maker free sample two touchdowns, strontium bone maker free sample” Lloyd said. Strontium bone maker 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, strontium bone maker free sample but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Strontium bone maker free sample Halfway into his first season, strontium bone maker free sample it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, strontium bone maker free sample and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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