5:19 pm
he's worked at both tackled. nate has played on both sides. so i mean, we're fortunate to have those type of players. it's not always the case at that position. >> reporter: and of course, protecting tom brady, the biggest job for the pats' o- line. he was hit eight times and sacked five times last week. they have to do a better job than last week. david? meantime, one bakery in indy is having fun selling deflate gate themed goodies like this deflated football. who can forget this courtroom deflate gate hearings. now you can have it on a cookie. you can see the cracked screen and all in cookie form. paula, i heard that they tried to make an andrew luck cookie, but it crumbled under the slightest bit of pressure.
