NFL finds 'defective' football in Steelers-Eagles game

WATCH: JuJu Smith-Schuster with 71-yard TD grab in preseason opener REPORT: NFL Investigating Deflated Football Pittsburgh Steelers Used Thursday Night vs. Eagles

According to a report from Howard Eskin of Sports Radio 94 WIP in Philadelphia, the NFL is investigating whether the Pittsburgh Steelers were using a deflated football in their pre-season opener against the Eagles.

That was at 10:26 p.m. ET.

I, for one, am curious to see what the punishment for tossing a deflated ball in inarguably the least important game of the year is.

The incident reportedly took place while Mason Rudolph was behind center for the Steelers.

Eskin joined the 94WIP Morning Show on Friday. I looked like he was squeezing a marshmallow. This was more than a little deflated.

Why the Galaxy Note 9 is the new king of the enterprise
Since then, Samsung has subjected its phones to multiple inspections, including X-rays and stress tests at extreme temperatures. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was put on pre-order this morning, right around 24 hours after the device was initially revealed.

Less than 12 hours later, the NFL sent a memo to reporters at the league owned network that basically said, "nothing to see here".

However, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport has reported the league says all footballs passed pregame inspection, and the ball in question was simply defective.

This actually isn't the first time the Steelers have been accused of doctoring their balls.

In 2016, the Giants asked the NFL to review two Steelers footballs that they believed were below the minimum pressure, but the NFL found no wrongdoing.

The NFL moved on quickly in that case as well.
