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

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

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

“It was two catches, order entocort cod” he said.

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

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

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

For Lloyd, order entocort cod and for Brady.

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

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Order entocort cod We just keep working at it, order entocort cod 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 entocort cod We’re always trying to make those improvements. Order entocort cod 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 entocort cod Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, order entocort cod which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, order entocort cod448 yards. Order entocort cod That number appears safe, order entocort cod barring an exceptional second half, order entocort cod but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, order entocort cod 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 entocort cod It could be a different standout every week, order entocort cod either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

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

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

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