Wednesday January 21st, 2015

On Tuesday night, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that 11 of New England Patriots' 12 allotted footballs used at Sunday's AFC title game against the Indianapolis Colts were under-inflated by two pounds of air (PSI) less than league regulations allow.

After Mortensen's report, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported that members of the Baltimore Ravens said they think slightly underinflated kicking balls were used during their AFC divisional round game against New England. Other current and former NFL players took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Deflategate.
