Everybody knows that the Patriots were one of the shadiest organizations in the NFL. They did whatever it took to win, even if it meant stretching the rules or even breaking them. The videotaping scandal implicated Bill Belichick but Brady took the brunt of Deflategate. This occurred after the 2014-15 AFC Championship Game.
The NFL hit Brady with a four-game suspension after they ruled that he used deflated balls throughout the game. It was a dark moment for Brady and his team but it didn’t affect him for long. After all, he won the NFL MVP award and the Patriots also won the Super Bowl the following season (via ESPN).
