FOXBORO -- After there were issues with the Steelers' headsets during Thursday's game with the Patriots at Gillette Stadium and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was very upset, the NFL released a statement late Thursday night. Via NFL spokesman Michael Signora, the NFL said the issue was because of a power infrastructure issue at the stadium. The statement reads: In the first quarter of tonight'€™s game, the Pittsburgh coaches experienced interference in their headsets caused by a stadium power infrastructure issue, which was exacerbated by the inclement weather. The coaches'€™ communications equipment, including the headsets, is provided by the NFL for both clubs use on game day. Once the power issue was addressed, the equipment functioned properly with no additional issues.
