FOXBOROUGH — When Dont’a Hightower was informed Bill Belichick had a lot of nice things to say about his work against the Chiefs in this week’s edition of “The Belestrator,” he paused for a second.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about at all. It’s on what?”

The linebacker was told it was on the Patriots website. Is that the sort of thing that shows up in the team film sessions?

“I’m going to go look it up. More times than not, it’s usually lowlights,” he said with a smile. “We’re not really getting too much praise here. I’m going to go check that out.

“(It’s nice) when it’s coming from the bossman.”

Belichick isn't the only one who might believe Hightower is trending in the right direction.
