Tom Brady and the big NFL Deflate-Gate were the topic of the Saturday Night Live cold opening this weekend.
In case you aren’t aware, the controversy surrounds the New England Patriots during the AFC Championship Game as it was found that eleven of the twelve balls on the Patriots side after half-time were found to be under-inflated. Under-inflated balls can be found to help grip and is a violation of the NFL’s rules.
“Honestly, I wasn’t even aware that footballs could be inflated or deflated,” Tom (played by Taran Killam) said in the spoof. “Look, all I know is that a football is a pigskin, so I just assumed that the air in the football is how much air was inside the pig when it died.” Watch the full sketch below!
