Just when we thought deflated footballs were in the rear view mirror… we have this.
During Monday night’s matchup of the Seahawks and Bills in Seattle, many fans noticed something that appeared strange during a Jon Ryan punt. The football Ryan was using for the punts appears to be deflated, as Ryan’s one-handed grip seems to easily warp the ball.

Though the kick in the video being shared was blocked, Ryan let go a booming punt later in the game that traveled an astounding 70 yards in the air.

Conspirators are even accusing NFL official Walt Anderson has something to do with it, as all these images below were from kicks made by Seahawks players in games officiated by him.
