REPORT: Patriots Communication System Failed During GameScott Galvin - USA TODAY Sports

In a story first reported by Comcast SportsNet New England’s Tom E. Curran, it was discovered that the New England Patriots coaching staff’s headsets were not working properly during the Bengals game on Sunday.

According to Curran, the situation was so bad both head coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia were forced to signal in plays “old school” after the headsets were deemed completely “unreliable.”

This marks the second instance this season technology has failed the Patriots as head coach Bill Belichick was caught on camera spiking a Microsoft Surface tablet in disgust just two weeks ago.

It is unknown if Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had anything to do with the situation.
