During the New England Patriots’ 45-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, 11 of the 12 footballs that the Patriots used were deflated, per ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen.
Colts tight end Dwayne Allen tweeted that the Colts would have lost the game regardless, but the NFL still investigated. After all, the NFL fined Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, one of the best coaches in NFL history, $500000 in 2007 for videotaping the opposing team’s signals. The Patriots were also fined $250000.
This will almost certainly draw a penalty, but the Patriots have to be focused on the upcoming Super Bowl.
