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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy acai in us” he said.

True, buy acai in us but both went for touchdowns. Buy acai in us Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, buy acai in us two touchdowns, buy acai in us” Lloyd said. Buy acai in us “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, buy acai in us and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy acai in us We just keep working at it, buy acai in us 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. Buy acai in us We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy acai in us 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, buy acai in us Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy acai in us which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy acai in us448 yards. Buy acai in us That number appears safe, buy acai in us barring an exceptional second half, buy acai in us but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy acai in us 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. Buy acai in us It could be a different standout every week, buy acai in us either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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