Kravitz: Patriots May Have Deflated Footballs
The Indianapolis Colts got it handed to them in the AFC Championship game in Foxborough, Massachusetts yesterday where the New England Patriots stomped them 45-7, but did they play fair? WTHR's Bob Kravitz says NFL sources tell him the Patriots are being investigated for deflating footballs used by the team in the game. Kravitz says officials took a ball out of play at one point and weighed it. Why deflate a ball? A deflated ball could be easier to throw and catch in the poor weather conditions that existed during last night's game. If an investigation confirms deflated balls were used, it could result if lost draft picks for the Patriots according to Kravitz.
