If there was ever any question as to how the Patriots feel about the Colts since they helped spark Deflategate, listen to what Patriots president Jonathan Kraft had to say before Sunday night's kickoff between the Patriots and Cardinals.
- Kraft: Brady banner will come down when Patriots-Cards kick off
- Curran: Sorry, NFL; the Patriots just keep on winning
- Boomer Esiason: After win in Arizona, Patriots could go 16-0 again this year
- Felger: Will Patriots take training wheels off Jimmy Garoppolo now?
Kraft was moved when he heard Patriots fans actively rooting against the Colts while their game with the Lions was being played on the video board inside University of Phoenix Stadium. He was so moved that he felt he had to mention what he saw -- unprompted, mind you -- during his pregame interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub.
"I'm looking at all the Patriots jerseys here, and I want you guys to know something," Kraft told Marc Bertrand and Chris Gasper. "Obviously it's a special building, awesome ending a couple of years ago here . . . So the Colts are playing the Lions, and they had the game on the big board here, and this is an NFC team's stadium that we're in, the Cardinals, and when the Lions kicked the field goal to win the game, there was a huge cheer. I thought they had missed it.
"That was the Patritos fans cheering in the Cardinals stadium becauise the Lions had beaten the Colts. Sorry, I just wanted to work that in. Thank you to all the Patriots fans that are here, and the peiople that come with us on the road. Sorry. I had to get that in."
