REPORT: NFL Investigating Deflated Football Pittsburgh Steelers Used Thursday Night vs. Eagles

The NFL released a statement regarding a report of a deflated football from Thursday night's preseason tilt between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles. Eskin's colorful vision tells it all.

Three years ago, the NFL launched an investigation and concluded that the Patriots used a deflated football during their blowout victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game.

Questions about an underinflated football flared among fans online after the preseason opener when a sideline radio reporter tweeted that he saw a ball looking "VERY deflated" after an incompletion thrown by Pittsburgh rookie Mason Rudolph.

After a lengthy investigation, the NFL ruled that the Patriots had used a deflated football and came down hard on the team and Brady.

"In the third quarter, a football that was found to be defective was removed from play and will be sent back to [manufacturer] Wilson for review". That incident resulted in Tom Brady being suspended for four games. New England also had two draft picks taken away, including a first-rounder, and was hit with a $1 million fine.

The NFL quickly squashed any talk of Deflategate 2 on Friday morning, saying everything was handled as it should have been and that the ball merely was "defective".
