Colts linebacker, D’Qwell Jackson, intercepted Tom Brady in the second quarter of last year’s AFC Championship game.  I think we all know by now what happened after that play, “deflate-gate.”

Jackson kept the ball intended for Rob Gronkowski, where a Colts equipment manager then checked the pressure of the intercepted ball.  From there, the sidelines were buzzing and eventually deflate-gate erupted into a full investigation and media frenzy.  But where is the infamous ball that caused all the outrage?  D’Qwell Jackson would like to know.

When asked about the ball, Jackson commented, “I have not received it. That’s the mystery ball.  If you could tell me where it is, you would do me a huge favor.”  He also commented on what it was like to be connected to deflate-gate by saying, “Twenty years from now I’m sure people will still kind of flirt around with it, so I guess it will be cool.”  Jackson does say that everything that happened after his interception was out of his hands, and he had no part in the situation after that.

Deflate-gate has made it’s way back into the spotlight, as the Colts take on the Patriots this Sunday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.  The teams will meet for the first time since deflate-gate last January.  Andrew Luck, who has been out the past two weeks due to a shoulder injury, is projected to play Sunday night.  Good “Luck” to the Colts this Sunday, as the upcoming game is being talked about as the most anticipated game of the season.
