After the NFL looked into the Steelers' headset issues in the first half of Thursday night's game against the Patriots, it has been determined the Patriots had nothing to do with the problem. The league's statement reads: Based on our review to date, we believe that the audio interference on the Steelers' headsets last night was entirely attributable to an electrical issue made worse by the inclement weather, that it involved no manipulation by any individual, and that the Patriots had nothing to do with it. The issue was promptly resolved and there were no further problems for the remainder of the game. We will continue to review the matter to determine if there are technical steps that can be taken to avoid similar problems for occurring in other games. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was very upset after the game as the coach-to-coach headsets had the Patriots' radio broadcast playing during the first half.
