     their most complete game of the season against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night — and one big reason for that was the execution on both sides of the football. While the offense was efficient despite missing three starters due to injury White Rex Burkhead Jerseys , the defense played perfectly complementary football: the pass rush made life hard for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, while the secondary covered well.The pass rush in particular is something Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was happy about, as a new NFL Films clip shows. Belichick wore a microphone on Sunday and on multiple occasions was captured talking to his front seven about their play:The clip, which focuses almost entirely on the stoic coach instead of the field of play, also shows some other highlights: from Belichick arguing with officials about timeouts and formations to him congratulating offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and de-facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores about the game they called and planned for. Safe to say Rex Burkhead Jerseys 2019 , that it is everything you would expect from him being mic’d up.NFL Films also produced a clip for Showtimes’ Inside the NFL, one that was shared by r/patriots and can be watched here. Hightower will be one of two members of the club to enter the stage in Nashville."Earlier this month, the NFL unveiled that New England Patriots center David Andrews will be among a group of 64 so-called ‘NFL legends’ to announce a day two draft pick this year. In Andrews’ case, it will be one of New England’s third-round selections — the team, of course White Adam Butler Jerseys , currently owns three of them. Andrews will not be the only member of the reigning world champions to enter the stage this weekend, though.As the league announced earlier today, Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower will also be among said group of ‘legends’: the three-time Super Bowl champion will unveil one of New England’s second-round selections. As things stand right now, this means that the 29-year-old will be on the stage either for the 56th or 64th pick tomorrow (or for both) — unless, of course Adam Butler Jerseys 2019 , the Patriots decide to move out of round two altogether.As opposed to former undrafted free agent Andrews, Hightower is no stranger to the draft day spotlight: the Alabama product visited the event in 2012 and was ultimately selected 25th overall by the Patriots. Following the club’s investment, he quickly established himself as a core member of New England’s defense — and locker room — and played an important role on the team’s three recent championship teams.The territory will be a familiar one for Hightower not just because of his personal draft history: he is a native of Lewisburg, where he has a street named after him, and grew up 50 miles south of Nashville. Hightower’s first regular season game wearing a New England uniform also took place in the host city of the 2019 draft.
