Did 'The New York Times' Make a Column About the New England Patriots Disappear? (VIDEO)

On Monday night, the New England Patriots defeated the New York Jets 45-3 in a battle of AFC East contenders.

According to Joe Scarborough, on Monday afternoon, The New York Times website posted a column by William Rhoden about the New England Patriots titled 'The Day the Patriot Empire Began to Crumble.' In the column, Rhoden made the argument that the Patriots have been in decline ever since the Spygate controversy, in which coach Bill Belichick had employees illegally tape opponent's practices.

Then, after the Monday night shellacking of The Times' home team, the column completely disappeared, preventing Scarborough from properly mocking Rhoden's ill-timed argument on 'Morning Joe' (weekdays, 6AM ET, MSNBC.)

"You cannot find this headline on the Internet today. They have completely scrubbed the the Internet clean of Rhoden's entire article," Scarborough explained.

It appears to be a sneaky and ethically questionable move by The Times. In fact, we're pretty sure it's one that Belichick might just appreciate.
