The New England Patriots' head coach says he didn't know anything about alleged under-inflated footballs used in Sunday's game.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers reports: 

Patriots coach Bill Belichick says he found out about the deflated footballs the same way a lot of other people did.

(Belichick) "I came in Monday morning. I was shocked to learn of the news reports about the footballs. I had no knowledge whatsoever of this situation until Monday morning."

They were used in Sunday's AFC match-up against the Indianapolis Colts.

The NFL is investigating allegations that eleven of the twelve balls used in the game were two pounds under-inflated.

The Patriots beat the Colts 45-7 and are heading to the Super Bowl to face the Seahawks.
