Reports: NFL looking into whether Patriots deflated balls against Colts


It’s this kind of stuff New England. People genuinely like Tom Brady, cheap but it always seems like the Patriots are willing to bend–or even break–the rules to give themselves an unfair advantage, especially at home.  Last week again the Ravens it was illegal formations. This week, under-inflated balls.

Here’s more from Fox Sports:

A New England Patriots playoff win wouldn’t be complete without some sort of controversy. Last Sunday, it was the Patriots’ unorthodox formations that rankled John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens in his team’s AFC divisional-round loss. This Sunday, following New England’s 45-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game, the NFL reportedly found something new to get pumped up about, according to Bob Kravitz of Indianapolis’ WTHR.com and NFL.com.

Here are a couple of Kravitz’ tweets from yesterday. Could it cost the Patriots some draft picks next year? We can only hope so, if this turns out to be true.

We especially like the last one.
