The NFL issued a statement Friday on "DeflateGate," saying it's been determined that footballs used by the Patriots in the second half of Sunday's AFC Championship Game were properly inflated, but footballs used by the Patriots in the first half were "under-inflated."
The investigation is being led by Ted Wells and Jeff Pash. Wells and Pash have interviewed 40 people, and their investigation remains "ongoing" with no timetable for a resolution. Per the initial statement, "The goals of the investigation will be to determine the explanation for why footballs used in the game were not in compliance with the playing rules and specifically whether any noncompliance was the result of deliberate action." The Patriots have publicly denied altering footballs at any point before or during last Sunday's game. Jan 23 - 2:04 PM

Tom Brady denied any wrongdoing stemming from allegations of football deflation by the Patriots at his Thursday press conference.

"I have no knowledge of wrongdoing," said a shaken Brady, who conceded he's disappointed the ball-deflation allegations have taken away from New England's on-field success. Brady said he saw 24 footballs before Sunday's AFC title game, and all of them "felt perfect." Brady's presser comes one day after Patriots coach Bill Belichick flatly denied altering footballs in the playoffs. The NFL's investigation remains ongoing.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Ravens tipped off the Colts about the Patriots' alleged practice of deflating footballs.

The NFL reportedly planned to test the Patriots' footballs at halftime, entering the AFC Championship game. There is still debate about whether a team would truly benefit from deflated footballs among players and NFL types. Either way, it's clear opponents have noticed a difference in the air inflating balls the Patriots have played with. The NFL's investigation is "ongoing."

Tom Brady completed 23-of-35 passes for 226 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 45-7 AFC Championship Game romp over the Colts.

Left for dead by many following an ugly Week 4 Monday night loss at Kansas City that dropped the Patriots to 2-2, Brady erased all doubts over the last four months. He ended up tearing through the league again (at age 37), ending the regular season with a top-5 passer rating and a top-8 fantasy finish. Now he goes back to the Super Bowl for the sixth time in a remarkable 15-year career where he'll match up with Seattle's Legion of Boom. The game is a stone pick 'em in most Las Vegas sportsbooks as of Sunday night.
Jan 18 - 11:28 PM

Tom Brady completed 33-of-50 passes for 367 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in New England's 35-31, Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

Brady also added a rushing score. With the Pats completely abandoning their running game — they dialed up all of 13 runs — they put the contest on Brady's shoulders, and he responded by leading them to their ninth AFC Championship Game in 14 years. Brady threw some ducks — none uglier than his pick near the end of the first half — but was surgical at the short-to-intermediate levels, finding Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola for 20 total receptions. Brady and the Pats will host either the Colts or Broncos next Sunday.
Jan 10 - 8:14 PM

Tom Brady restructured his contract to free up $24 million in cash for the Patriots to spend this offseason.

Brady agreed to change $24 million in a "skill" guarantee to an "injury-only" guarantee, meaning he would only now be guaranteed the money in the event of an injury. (The Patriots could cut Brady and be off the hook for that $24 million.) The Patriots need to re-sign Darrelle Revis, Devin McCourty, Nate Solder, and perhaps Shane Vereen. They now have the resources to do it.

Tom Brady was pulled from the Patriots' Week 17 matchup against the Bills after halftime.

Jimmy Garoppolo is in at quarterback for New England. Brady completed 8-of-16 passes for 80 yards and zero scores in one-half of work. Brady found Brandon LaFell and Brian Tyms for a couple long plays, but otherwise the Patriots' offense was stagnant against a stout Buffalo defense. The Patriots will get a week of rest before playing a home game in the Divisional Round.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin expects Tom Brady to only play a half Week 17 against the Bills.

This report echoes an earlier report from ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, who said the Patriots could treat the meaningless game as a fourth preseason contest. Regardless of the exact snap count, it is becoming clear Brady and the Patriots' starters will not play a full game against the Bills. Already in a tough matchup, Brady needs to be avoided in both seasonal and daily formats.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss suggests the Patriots may not play their starters the whole game during Sunday's regular season finale against the Bills.

The Patriots clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed when the Broncos lost to the Bengals on Monday night. Reiss suspects the Patriots could view this game "similar to a fourth preseason contest when the third preseason game doesn't go as well as planned." That could mean trying to "develop some momentum" on offense and if that happens, pulling guys like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski for the second half. Of course, Bill Belichick has been known to keep his foot on the gas in tons of low-priority situations, so no one knows for sure what will happen. But there's certainly risk in using any Patriots this week.

Tom Brady completed 23-of-35 passes for 182 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Patriots' 17-16, Week 16 win over the Jets.

Missing security blanket Julian Edelman, Brady was under siege from the opening whistle. Looking to get coach Rex Ryan one more upset of arch-nemesis Bill Belichick, the Jets treated the game like the Super Bowl, getting in Brady's face to the tune of four sacks, and countless other pressures. Brady's pick was an ill-advised pass in the face of the rush. New England was lucky to escape with a victory. The Pats have now clinched at least a first-round bye, and will earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a Broncos loss to the Bengals on Monday Night Football.

Tom Brady completed 21-of-35 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Patriots' 41-13, Week 15 win over the Dolphins.

He added three rushes for 18 additional yards. It was an easy victory for the Pats over a team whose season was on the line, and secured yet another AFC East title for Brady and coach Bill Belichick. Brady's first-quarter pick, which he threw right to fill-in LB Jason Trusnik, was the lone lowlight. Brady has now posted multiple scores in 10-straight starts. Although coach Rex Ryan has given Brady fits in the past, he'll be an elite QB1 against the Jets' pathetic secondary in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:22:00 PM

Tom Brady completed 28-of-44 passes for 317 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday night's Week 14 win over the Chargers.

Brady was held in check for most of the game despite the stat line. He struggled in the red-zone, and threw an interception trying to force the ball to Rob Gronkowski at the end of the first half. Brady's first touchdown was a 14-yard back-shoulder fade to Gronk, with his second coming on a Julian Edelman 69-yard catch and run. He's now up to 3,560 yards, 30 touchdowns, and seven interceptions through 13 games. Brady will be a mid-range QB1 for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

Tom Brady completed 22-of-35 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns in New England's 26-21, Week 13 loss to the Packers.

Brady was out-dueled by Aaron Rodgers, though he didn't play poorly. Both of his scores went to Brandon LaFell, while Rob Gronkowski nearly caught a third with a circus attempt in the end zone. Brady did endure an inaccurate stretch in the second half as he was bothered by the Packers' pass rush. He was also slowed by a banged up Julian Edelman, who was playing through a thigh issue. Brady should have more box-score success against the Chargers' leaky pass defense in Week 14.

Tom Brady completed 38-of-53 passes for 349 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.

Surgical in a spread offense the Patriots designed specifically to attack Detroit's stout defensive front, Brady found Tim Wright for touchdown throws of 4 and 8 yards in the first half. Brady's lone slip-up was a red-zone interception early in the third quarter intended for Rob Gronkowski. Tom Terrific didn't take a single sack on Sunday. Brady has now topped 300 passing yards in 63 career games, tying Dan Marino in the NFL record books. Shredding even the league's best defenses these days, Brady has reemerged as a top-shelf fantasy QB1 after a painfully slow first month of the season. The Patriots visit the Packers at Lambeau Field next in a potential shootout.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 04:45:00 PM

Tom Brady completed 19-of-30 passes for 257 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in New England's 42-20, Week 11 win over the Colts.

Brady struggled early, with two interceptions to Colts FS Mike Adams. The gameplan didn't call for him to do much this week, but he managed to salvage his night with a pair of second-half touchdowns. Brady's first score was a play-action pass to Tim Wright at the goal-line, and he later hit Rob Gronkowski from 26 yards out. It was the first time he was held under three touchdowns since Week 5. Brady will remain locked in as a QB1 despite a difficult Week 12 matchup with Detroit.
