Ahead of their match up against the New England Patriots, the Buffalo Bills are trying to deflate the other teams confidence.

The Bills' team store has begun stocking up on air pumps, an obvious nod to the Deflategate scandal. Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady was originally suspended for the first four games of the season as punishment for his alleged involvement in deflating footballs, but a judge threw out the suspension Sept. 3 because he claimed Brady suffered from a lack of fair due process.

None of that is stopping the Bills from having their fun.



Come on you guys, you're going to make Tom Brady's face sad and melty again.

In another twist and turn of the #DeflatgeGate saga, Tom Brady's 4-game suspension has been lifted by a court.

Judge Richard M. Berman nullified the NFL's suspension in a 40-page decision, which basically stated that the league didn't do anything right in investigating accusations the New England Patriots deflated footballs during the Super Bowl.

Deadspin summed up the decision in these three points:

The NFL is expected to appeal, which could reinstate Brady's suspension. But the Internet still had a lot of feeling about today's decision...

Even Snoop Dogg got in on the action, criticizing the suspension reversal on Instagram.

Tom Brady's courtroom sketch gets the meme treatment.

Tom Brady had to show up in court today for his possible involvement in under-inflated footballs during last year's football season. If that weren't enough, the court room artist drew a picture of sad Brady, though it definitely doesn't capture the essence of the Patriots' quarterback who has also done modeling work.

See, here's a side by side comparison:



Of course, the Internet took it and ran with it, like it was a pigskin in the last play of Super Bowl XLVIII.

























Personally, I think he looks like Tommy Wiseau.



If it helps, the courtroom artist, Jane Rosenberg has already apologized for the sketch.

Poor Tom Brady. I hope he can get enough comfort from his model wife, millions of dollars and four Super Bowl rings.
