Patriots ask appeals court to rehear 'Deflategate' case

NEW YORK (AP) — The New England Patriots have asked a federal appeals court in New York City to rehear the "Deflategate" case.

The team said in court papers filed Wednesday in Manhattan that it has a "strong interest" in sparing quarterback Tom Brady from starting the season with a four-game suspension.

The papers say the Patriots "strongly believe" nobody tampered with footballs at the 2015 AFC Championship game. New England defeated the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 in that game and went on to win the Super Bowl.
