Per Glazer, the Giants tested two footballs after Steelers turnovers and found that both had been deflated. Pittsburgh denies the claims and says that there was no wrongdoing in the team’s 24-14 victory.
The NFL quickly responded to Glazer’s report, saying no formal complaint was filed by the Giants:
