Report: NFL Looking Into the Steelers Using Deflated Footballs During Preseason Win Over Eagles

The Steelers had an impressive effort in their first preseason game and win over the Champion Eagles on Thursday, taking home a 31-17 victory.

The win though today might be marred by the NFL and a reported investigation that the league is looking into the Steleers using ‘deflated footballs’ during the two TD win.

Howard Eskin of WIP tweeted out the report that the NFL has one of the second half footballs, and that they are looking into the matter.

Now why the Steelers would be so dumb as to using under inflated footballs during a preseason game is beyond me. This sounds like a case of spilled milk, but if there is any evidence of a football not fully inflated, the NFL is going to look into the case after what happened during the AFC Title game in 2015, even if it is preseason.

Here’s hoping that the report isn’t true and we can all move on from the matter.
