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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For Lloyd, viagra stamina and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Viagra stamina We just keep working at it, viagra stamina 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 stamina We’re always trying to make those improvements. Viagra stamina 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 stamina Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, viagra stamina which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, viagra stamina448 yards. Viagra stamina That number appears safe, viagra stamina barring an exceptional second half, viagra stamina but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, viagra stamina 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 stamina It could be a different standout every week, viagra stamina either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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