The 10 of the best signs that Patriots fans used to taunt the NFL on opening night

New England fans turned out in full force to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro last night to watch their beloved Patriots beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 28-21.

The game itself had a little bit of everything: a first-quarter headset snafu that the Steelers said was yet another instance of the Patriots cheating, three Rob Gronkowski touchdowns, and a garbage time backdoor push by the Steelers that had many otherwise nonpartisan viewers (including yours truly!) pulling their hair out.

In the stands, many Pats fans waved creative, colourful, and occasionally vulgar signs to both celebrate Tom Brady’s ultimate Deflategate victory and bash Roger Goodell.

Here are some of the best!
