As the NFL investigates whether the New England Patriots intentionally deflated footballs in their 45-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game, the Patriots head coach Bill Belichick addressed the issue today.

Belichick said he wasn’t aware of any issues concerning the game balls until the morning after the game. And he said he and the team will continue to cooperate with the NFL during its probe. Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca discusses the latest with host Robin Young.
