Dont’a Hightower boosting New England Patriots’ defense

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Dont’a Hightower and the New England Patriots defense have made great strides since their season-opening loss. Their past two opponents totaled one offensive touchdown. And the third-year linebacker had 15 tackles and two sacks in those games. Those were against Miami, Minnesota and Oakland, three teams with mediocre quarterbacks. The defense’s job gets tougher Monday against the Kansas City Chiefs and Alex Smith on the road. But Smith will have to figure out where the versatile Hightower is coming from.
