Patriots Win Despite Deflate-Gate Scandal
The Patriots came out on top even after the cheating allegations they faced going into the big game. After the Patriots annihilated the Colts on Jan. 19, thus securing a spot in the Super Bowl, NFL officials opened up an investigation regarding the tampering of footballs.
On Jan. 22, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady held a live press conference in regards to the accusations.
“I didn’t alter the ball in any way,” Tom said to a room full of press. “I have a process that I go through where before the game I go through and pick the balls that I want to use,” he explained. “When I pick those balls out, at that point, to me they’re perfect. I don’t want anyone touching the balls after that, I don’t want anyone rubbing them.”
The verdict of the investigation came and 11 of the 12 balls they used reportedly measured more than 2 pounds per square inch lighter than required by NFL rules.
