Patriots Notebook

Brandon Lloyd starting to connect with Tom Brady

BALTIMORE — Nobody had more passes thrown his way than Brandon Lloyd, who was targeted by Tom Brady 12 times in the 31-30 loss Sunday night. Nobody caught more passes than Lloyd’s nine, his best game as a Patriot.

Lloyd’s receptions went for 108 yards, and he still hasn’t taken one into the end zone this season. But he and Brady looked to be on the same page all night, save for maybe one deep pass that Lloyd hesitated on while running his route. His longest pass play went for 22 yards, and six of his nine catches came in the second half.
