New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Thursday that he had no knowledge of the "Deflategate" controversy until Monday, and that he had "no explanation" for the under-inflated footballs his team used in last week's AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.
"In my entire coaching career, I have never talked to any player or staff member on football air pressure," said Belichick. "To me, the footballs are approved by league and game officials pre-game."
