Dont'a Hightower has received plenty of criticism from the media this season.

He's been called one of Bill Belichick's bigger draft busts with the Patriots.

But recently he's looked better out on the field, and on Sunday that trend continued upwards as the linebacker had six tackles and a pass defended in the win over the Ravens.

Troy Brown, Ty Law, Mike Flynn, and Mike Felger commented on the play of Hightower in Postgame Live.

"He looked 10,000 times better than what he's looked in the past," Brown said. "He just looked like a more alert football player with better instincts. You saw him moving around in that zone defense, getting up under that first turnover that Logan Ryan got and getting his hands on the ball . . . in the run game I thought he played pretty well too. He was hitting some gaps making some plays and he just wasn't around the football, he was in the action making plays. I thought he played a much better game this week than he did in the past."
