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

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

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

“It was two catches, viagra clones” he said.

True, viagra clones but both went for touchdowns. Viagra clones Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, viagra clones two touchdowns, viagra clones” Lloyd said. Viagra clones “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, viagra clones and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Viagra clones We just keep working at it, viagra clones 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. Viagra clones We’re always trying to make those improvements. Viagra clones 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, viagra clones Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, viagra clones which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, viagra clones448 yards. Viagra clones That number appears safe, viagra clones barring an exceptional second half, viagra clones but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, viagra clones 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. Viagra clones It could be a different standout every week, viagra clones either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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