Deflategate has been the subject of many late night talk show zingers the past few months, but Jeopardy! offered an older Patriots reference Wednesday night.
In the "Before and After" category, the show provided this clue:
The answer was "Who Is Peeping Tom Brady?" and as you might suspect, Patriots fans got pretty heated. Maybe it was unintentional, but this clue evokes the Patriots/Spygate flap of 2007.
Really @Jeopardy - Peeping Tom Brady ! ? !

Some, including NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano, are not buying the anti-Patriots conspiracy theory. They might be right.
Anyone who thinks Jeopardy made fun of Tom Brady/Patriots last night has clearly never watched the show and doesn't understand the category.
