Bill Nye the Science Guy tests Patriots' Deflategate theory

Tuesday January 27th, 2015

Finally, America's favorite scientist has subjected the Patriots' Deflategate explanation to rigorous examination. 

Bill Nye the Science Guy already said on Good Morning America that he didn't believe what Bill Belichick had to say, but now he's actually used the scientific method to back up his claims.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson doesn't believe Belichick and the Patriots either. But at least actress Marisa Tomei does.
