Following a Thursday night report by Howard Eskin of WIP Radio in Philadelphia that stated the league was an investigating a deflated football that was used in the third quarter by the Pittsburgh Steelers offense in their preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL has now publicly addressed the situation.

Eskin joined the 94WIP Morning Show on Friday. "In the 3Q, a football that was found to be defective was removed from play, will be sent back to Wilson for review".

"All footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process and all proper procedures were followed", NFL vice president of football communications Michael Signora said in a statement. "So the ball boy comes over, picks up the football, and he squeezes".

Still, since this marks the first time that Philadelphia enters a new season as defending Super Bowl champions, fans were excited to see how the team would look against a playoff-caliber team like Pittsburgh, even if most of the players were the backups, one of which was Nate Sudfeld. The next thing I knew, the NFL was checking the football.
