It might be time to order some new headsets at Gillette Stadium.
The New England Patriots’ 2015 season started with a home win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the talk after the game quickly turned to the visitors’ headset issues, or Headsetgate as it’s now called.
Four months later, more headset issues surfaced at Gillette, and this time it was during the Patriots’ 27-20 win in an AFC Divisional Playoff against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Sunday his team had issues communicating from the sideline with quarterback Alex Smith during the first half and that the headsets cut out “just a little bit, not much,” according to the Associated Press. However, the AP said Reid didn’t believe it was “anything out of the ordinary.”
So that settles that.
