According to the NFLís 2014 rule book, game balls are to be inflated with between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds of air. Per NFL rules, home and road teams must provide 12 game balls apiece to be tested and approved by the league 135 minutes before game time. The home team also has to have 12 reserve game balls on hand to be tested, with the road team also having that option in outdoor games.

They're not going to forfeit to Seattle, there's way too much money at stake.

Colts don't deserve to go, they got embarrassed, not just in the passing game.

Patriots should have to play without any on field coaching staff. Ball boys and medical staff only.

I'm not sure what else would work and still be fair.

CBS reporting that the Ravens also suspected the same thing the week earlier against the Patriots.

Remember the Patriots never ran the ball in the 2nd half, only passed it except for 1 QB sneak.

This is Bellecheck's second offense, yet he has one of the most talented teams in the league.

Would it really be that difficult for a player or ball-boy to stick one of those ball inflating needles in (no pump of course) and drain off some air really quickly?

It seems like it would be damn easy. Especially for anyone handling the footballs just prior to the next play. Everyone is watching what's going on on the field, not what the ball-boy is doing.

ETA: Not saying that is what happened. It just seems like it would be easy to do.

If they were inflated with warm air that cooled, the pressure would drop. The tires on your car will do the same thing, that's why when it gets cold your tires loose pressure. 2 psi is about what they would loose with a 40 degree drop in temperature.

Yeah, and that is plenty of time for a ball to cool down. I would imaging in places like Lambeau field it is extremely difficult to maintain the right pressures. You would have to inflate them on the field and not let them sit in the sun or anything like that.

In cold weather, underinflating the balls can create a huge competitive advantage for the offense. By rule, a game ball must be between 12.5-13.5 psi. Now, would the Pats have won anyway? Almost certainly. But I guarantee it would have been closer than 45-7 if they'd had regulation balls.

It depends on what kind of team you're playing against. if they are a throwing team with more of an offensive strategy, underinflating the balls would do no good, it might even hurt. The main reason they are supposed to be kept at a specific pressure is kicking, believe it or not. The wind would give one team an advamtage anyway, but coupled with underinflated balls it is substantial.

If you're kicking an underinflated ball against the wind, you're going to get a poor result.
