League Investigating Charge that Patriots Improperly Monitored Jets' Play Signals
NFL officials are investigating an incident in which a New England Patriots employee who was on the field during Sunday's triumph over the New York Jets at Giants Stadium was accused of videotaping Jets coaches on their sideline signaling play calls to players on the field, a league source said.
If the allegation against the Patriots is substantiated, it would be a violation of league rules and the Patriots perhaps could be punished. There long have been tensions between the two organizations, intensifying most recently when Eric Mangini left the staff of Patriots Coach Bill Belichick to become the head coach of the Jets prior to last season.
