Brady and Lloyd Developing Chemistry

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Looking at the developing chemistry of Tom Brady and receiver Brandon Lloyd, who connected nine times against the Ravens week 3.

While there wasn't much to celebrate following the Patriots' week three loss to the Baltimore Ravens, there was one really positive trend to note: the continued growth of the chemistry between quarterback Tom Brady and receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Through three weeks, two things have become clear:

1. The Patriots see Brandon Lloyd as the team's clear-cut number one receiver.

2. The Patriots are going to do whatever it takes to get Brandon Lloyd more involved in the offense.

That being said, lets look at Lloyd's targets and catches through three weeks:

Week 1 (@ Tennessee): 8 targets, 5 receptions, 69 yards

Week 2 (vs. Arizona): 13 targets, 8 receptions, 60 yards

Week 3 (@ Baltimore): 12 targets, 9 receptions, 108 yards

Lloyd has led the Patriots in targets in all three games, and with each passing game, his chemistry with Tom Brady appears to be improving. Brady and Lloyd appear to be working really hard to establish that connection - with Brady running over to congratulate Lloyd after a back-shoulder completion down the left sideline in the first half (a play they had failed to execute several times this year). The duo still have a ways to go - especially when it comes to connecting on plays 20 yards down the field. But the constant improvement these two have shown is exciting, and it really shows up week to week. By the end of the year, the Brady-Lloyd connection could be one of the league's most dynamic.
