It's been more than four months now since the Patriots beat the Colts in the 2015 AFC Championship Game. It's the game that was, of course, marred by the #DeflateGate scandal that followed it. And while the NFL still hasn't released any information about the findings of their investigation into the scandal, #DeflateGate is making headlines once again because of a joke that Tony Romo made during the Academy of Country Music Awards last night.

At one point during the show, Romo was asked to throw a pass to country music star Luke Bryan. He completed it. But after he did, he was asked whether or not the football was "one of them deflated balls," and he responded by saying that it wasn't.

"We're the Dallas Cowboys," he said. "We have real balls."

You hear that, New England?! Watch Romo in action in the clip above.
