NFL Investigating Claim of Deflated Balls During Patriots-Colts Game

461746346

Hours after the Patriots rolled over the Colts in the AFC championship, columnist Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star tweeted that a league source told him that “the NFL is investigating the possibility the Patriots deflated footballs” during Sunday’s game, Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports.

Deflated balls could be easier to grip, throw, catch and hold.

According to Kravitz, the officials took a ball out of play during the game to weigh it. He wrote that if the league determines that the Patriots were involved in intentionally deflating balls, they could lose a draft pick.

Early Monday morning, NFL spokesman Michael Signora confirmed to Newsday’s Bob Glauber that the league is investigating the issue.

No one with the Colts has commented on the issue, and Kravitz pointed out that ”nobody is suggesting this is why the Colts lost [on Sunday]. … They were manhandled.”

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was asked about the allegations Monday morning during his regularly scheduled appearance on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan show. He didn’t seem to be taking them too seriously.

Laughing, Brady responded that “I think I’ve heard it all at this point. That’s ridiculous.”

Luck vs Manning – A QB Battle for the Ages Sunday in Denver

It seems to be the only matchup that anyone is talking about when it comes to Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Colts and Denver Broncos.

Andrew Luck vs Peyton Manning.

All eyes seem to be on the two franchise QB’s, two players that represent the future and the present of the NFL. Luck wants to be mentioned in the same breath with Manning, who was the Colts franchise QB for years until the team drafted Luck three seasons ago.

The Colts QB says that hearing about the battle between he and Manning is nothing new, and he’s ready for it to be the storyline leading up to Sunday afternoon.

“Part of the job, I guess,” Luck said. “Honestly, (ordinary) people don’t ask me too much about it; it’s you guys on the media days. And I would, too.

“I think (we’re) fans who love storylines, right, and it seems to be the nature, the sports culture today. So be it.”

It was Manning who for years was the face of the franchise, and once he left the team and wound up with the high-powered Broncos, that title went to Luck, who has lived up to the hype.

Now the two go head-to-head on one of the NFL’s biggest stages, a game that will land one just one game shy of the Super Bowl.

Manning for one never thought he would have to beat his old team in the postseason.

“Certainly not while I was playing for the Colts,” he said. “That would be a hard thing to do, don’t you think?”

The Colts remain an underdog in Denver on Sunday, and according to The Standard, the horseshoe is 15/2 to win the AFC, and 18/1 to win the Super Bowl in four weeks.

It’s a tall task, but if the Colts can pull off the upset in Denver Sunday, those odds will surly go down as the team gets set for the AFC Title Game.
