Super Bowl XLIX Inspired Look: New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have made it to Super Bowl XLIX and there is already controversy. An investigation has shown 11 out of the 12 footballs used in the game against the Indianapolis Colts were under inflated. Under inflated footballs are easier for quarterbacks to grip especially in cold weather. People will be keeping a close eye on the Patriots for Super Bowl XLIX February 1, 2015.
