Tom Brady fought the NFL over his Deflategate suspension... and won.
The Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots' quarterback just defeated the league in his Deflategate court case Thursday, according to ESPN, and a judge has nullified the league's four-game suspension on him.
This clears the way for Brady to play Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers next Thursday.
The breaking news marks a huge victory for Brady and a crushing blow for the NFL. Remember, league commissioner Roger Goodell met with the star quarterback and heard his appeal in late July, deciding to uphold his four-game suspension.
However, a federal judge disagreed and Brady will now be allowed to lead his Patriots during Week 1 of the 2015 NFL season.
