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

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

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

“It was two catches, buy cheap mentat” he said.

True, buy cheap mentat but both went for touchdowns. Buy cheap mentat Won’t that help his confidence?

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

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

For Lloyd, buy cheap mentat and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Buy cheap mentat We just keep working at it, buy cheap mentat 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 cheap mentat We’re always trying to make those improvements. Buy cheap mentat 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 cheap mentat Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, buy cheap mentat which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, buy cheap mentat448 yards. Buy cheap mentat That number appears safe, buy cheap mentat barring an exceptional second half, buy cheap mentat but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, buy cheap mentat 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 cheap mentat It could be a different standout every week, buy cheap mentat either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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