The AFC Championship match between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs was one of the best games that we have seen all season, a lot has been written on the controversy surrounding the calls made by referees during the game (a pat on the chest is now considered roughing the passer) but that was not the only issue during the game.
According to sources from ESPN’s Mike Reiss, the NFL will look into an incident that was reported by local Kansas City station KMBC, a laser pointer was being aimed at Tom Brady’s eyes a play before he threw an interception.
Our photographer, Turner Twyman, caught someone pointing what appears to be a laser pointer in Tom Brady’s face last night. Play between the “muff” that wasn’t and Sorensen int. @NFL, @Patriots and @Chiefs all told me they weren’t aware of the incident. pic.twitter.com/ejWBQ6i64C

This did not stop the greatest dynasty in modern football from finding an Overtime victory with a score of 37-31. Brady completed 30 of 46 passes, for 348 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions, perfectly executing a carefully developed game plan by the best mind in football, head coach Bill Belichick. This W came against a team lead by one of the rising stars in the league in Patrick Mahomes and gave them a ticket to Super Bowl LIII.
