REPORT: NFL investigating Steelers for using deflated football against Eagles

The DeflateGate saga returns.

According to Eagles’ sideline reporter Howard Eskin, during the game there was at least one football the Steelers were using that was very deflated. That specific ball has been confiscated, and the NFL is conducting a further investigation.

The last time this happened was back in late 2016, when the Giants were found to be using an underinflated ball against the Steelers. While the issue actually gained attention back in 2015 during the AFC Championship Game, when the Patriots were found guilty of using deflated balls. Fines were issued to players and staff.

UPDATE: Pittsburgh Steelers’ Q3 game ball was found to be “defective”.
