Stats show the New England Patriots became nearly fumble-proof after a 2006 rule change pushed by Tom Brady.

You might guess that this team plays on the African savanna...because they're lion cheetahs.

Wow Dave. I think the NFL should go back to the home team providing balls for both teams and the officials can rotate balls to both offenses.

These stats are indicative of the Patriots taking advantage of their ability to control their own balls. Why the officials didn't throw more balls out in the past is skeptical at best.
