Patriots Accused of Using Deflated Football

Would the New England Patriots do whatever it takes to get back into the Super Bowl? There is a new claim stating that the team actually used a deflated football during their playoff game, which they won that got them into the Super Bowl.

The NFL is looking into this alleged claim, but Patriots quarterback stated that the situation is “ridiculous.”

The Patriots swept the Colts 45-7 Sunday night ensuring their spot in the upcoming Super Bowl game set to take place on February 1.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed that an accusation was made when an Indianapolis reporter seized one game ball to determine if it was deflated. Brady was able to complete 23 of 35 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns, and having the ball deflated reportedly makes the ball easier to throw and catch, and is believed to be why the Patriots were able to crush the Colts Sunday night in the AFC Championship Game.

Bob Kravitz, of WTHR in Indiana, brought the attention to the public eye when he tweeted that “The NFL is investigating the possibility, at one point the officials took a ball out of play and weighed it.”

Brady stated in his Monday interview with a New England Radio Station, WEEI that “I think I’ve heard it all at this point. That’s the last of my worries. I don’t even respond to stuff like this.”

This is not the first time that the New England Patriots have been accused of cheating, in 2007 the team was fined 250,000 dollars and stripped of their first round draft pick because they illegally videotaped their opponents hand signals. Bill Belichick, the head coach, was fined 500,000 dollars for the incident. The St. Louis Rams also accused the team of illegally videotaped their walk-through practices before the 2002 Super Bowl.

Many do not believe that the balls were deflated because the Colts would have been able to benefit from this as well. Brady and company do not seem concerned about the allegation, but are instead going to worry about the big game coming up.
