Video: Patriots rookies Jones and Hightower force a fumble, score a touch down, and dance

I am sure that most of Patriots nation was pleased by the play that our first round draft picks made in the 2nd quarter of the Patriots' season opening win vs the Titans on Sunday. In the above video, Chandler Jones strips the ball from Jake Locker, and Dont'a Hightower recovers it and takes the ball into the end zone for a touchdown.

Chandler Jones' dance at 12 seconds into the video is also pretty great. I have high expectations for Jones, probably because I am an MMA fan and have witnessed the athletic prowess of his brother Jon "Bones" Jones (UFC Light Heavyweight Champion) and therefore believe that Chandler will also possess Jon's freakish athletic abilities. I know it's unfair to make such assumptions about genetics, but Chandler showed promising talent and athleticism against Tennessee. I didn't get to watch many of the pre-season games since they were during the week, but I heard that Jones performed pretty well in those games as well.

I am looking forward to seeing the contributions that these two rookies will make to the Patriots defense over the course of this season. Video courtesy of NEPatriotsNFL on Youtube.
