The Pittsburgh Steelers did not and will not file a formal complaint to the NFL over the headset problems they experienced during Thursday night’s 28-21 loss to the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
“We have provided information to NFL representatives regarding issues that occurred Thursday night at Gillette Stadium with our coach-to-coach headset communications system,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “The problem was addressed during the game and we did not have further problems in the second half. We did not file a formal complaint, nor do we plan to do so.”
Steelers coaches were not able to communicate using their headsets for most of the first quarter. Instead, all they could hear in their headsets was the Patriots’ radio broadcast.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was upset after the game, but hopefully, this matter will go away over the weekend.
