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

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

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

“It was two catches, order cheap aciphex” he said.

True, order cheap aciphex but both went for touchdowns. Order cheap aciphex Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, order cheap aciphex two touchdowns, order cheap aciphex” Lloyd said. Order cheap aciphex “We still have a lot of work to do.”

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

For Lloyd, order cheap aciphex and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order cheap aciphex We just keep working at it, order cheap aciphex 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. Order cheap aciphex We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order cheap aciphex 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, order cheap aciphex Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order cheap aciphex which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order cheap aciphex448 yards. Order cheap aciphex That number appears safe, order cheap aciphex barring an exceptional second half, order cheap aciphex but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order cheap aciphex 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. Order cheap aciphex It could be a different standout every week, order cheap aciphex either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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