The NFL is investigating a suspected laser pointer strike on quarterback Tom Brady during the Patriots’ AFC Championship match with the Kansas City Chiefs.
NBC Sports reported Tuesday morning the football league has confirmed to the Boston Herald that they are investigating a video that appears to show a green light shining on Brady’s face during the game. The beam may have come from a Chiefs fan trying to distract him with a laser pointer. Kansas City police said they have not received a complaint, but will investigate it if reported.
The Chiefs fell to the New England Patriots 37 – 31 during the AFC Championship match. If Kansas City had won, it would have been their first trip to the Super Bowl in just under 50 years.
