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

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

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

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

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

“It was two catches, order ultracet cod two touchdowns, order ultracet cod” Lloyd said. Order ultracet 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 ultracet cod but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Order ultracet cod Halfway into his first season, order ultracet cod it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, order ultracet cod and for Brady.

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

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

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

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

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