Flowers' consistency key to Patriots' improvement on defense

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Like most of the Patriots players, Trey Flowers generally stays under the radar.

Flowers has made his loudest impact on the field and emerged as a key part of the defense during the runs to the Super Bowl in the past two seasons.

Flowers has become one of the leaders on a defense that has finally found some stability after struggling to stop teams early in the season. He has helped fill the void created by Dont'a Hightower's season-ending shoulder injury.
