The results of the Ted Wells report are finally in. You can read the entire 243-page result of the Deflategate investigation here, but this is what you need to know:

"The Wells reports came to two primary conclusions: 1) That Jim McNally, the officials locker room attendant for the Patriots, and John Jastremski, the Pats' equipment manager, deliberately tried to release air from the teams' game ball after they were examined by referees, and 2) That quarterback Tom Brady was aware of what McNally and Jastremski were doing. In essence, even if Brady didn't order the balls to be deflated, he didn't do anything to stop the practice."

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports that punishment could be coming.

The Patriots obviously a history of cheating. Several former Eagles players believe cheating was taking place in the 2005 Super Bowl between Philadelphia and New England.

The Eagles play the Patriots at Gilette Stadium in Week 13 this season.
