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

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

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

“It was two catches, discount lisinopril” he said.

True, discount lisinopril but both went for touchdowns. Discount lisinopril Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, discount lisinopril two touchdowns, discount lisinopril” Lloyd said. Discount lisinopril “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, discount lisinopril and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Discount lisinopril We just keep working at it, discount lisinopril 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. Discount lisinopril We’re always trying to make those improvements. Discount lisinopril 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, discount lisinopril Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, discount lisinopril which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, discount lisinopril448 yards. Discount lisinopril That number appears safe, discount lisinopril barring an exceptional second half, discount lisinopril but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, discount lisinopril 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. Discount lisinopril It could be a different standout every week, discount lisinopril either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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