The New England Patriots are heading back to the Super Bowl. In case you missed it Sunday night, they trounced the Indianapolis Colts with a 45-7 win at Gillette Stadium to capture the AFC title. It was the second most lopsided championship win ever and it means the Pats are now preparing for the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX Feb. 1 in Arizona.
But first comes word of a possible scandal that Twitter users are dubbing #deflategate. The NFL is investigating whether the Patriots deflated footballs in Sunday night's game.
- "The New England Patriots are headed back to the Super Bowl, their sixth of the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era, after a 45-7 dismantling of the overmatched Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night."
- "Hours after the New England Patriots advanced to Super Bowl XLIX, the NFL was looking into allegations that the team used deflated footballs in the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts."
