Less than a week after the publication of Ted Wells' report in the New England Patriots tampering with game balls, the NFL has dished out punishment for the franchise and Tom Brady.
Brady will be suspended for four games meaning he will miss those against Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Jacksonville and Dallas. He will likely appeal the suspension though and possibly have it reduced.
