NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has upheld Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on integrity of the game, the league announced on Tuesday.
Brady was suspended four games in May after footballs used by the Patriots during the AFC Championship Game against the Colts last year were found to be inflated under the minimum level prescribed by the league.
Brady will be eligible to play in Week 6 against the Colts in Indianapolis. The Patriots franchise was also fined $1million and lost a couple of 2016 and 2017 draft picks.
Right now, Sportsbook.ag has New England favored by 3.5 over the Steelers in Week 1, which is the Thursday Night NFL opener on September 10th.
