Roethlisberger stops just short of accusing the Patriots of cheating.

    Roethlisberger attributes their week 1 loss to the Patriots to headset issues which caused a failure in communication between the coaches and the himself. A league spokesman said that the interference was due to inclement weather and had nothing to do with the actions of any individual.

    But Roethlisberger clearly isn't sure. He doesn't directly accuse anyone of anything in particular, but he did say, "Whether we were outcoached or outplayed or they had some kind of a leg up, I always felt that they knew some of our offensive plays. For whatever reason. Maybe it was better scouting or whatever. But I had always felt that."

    With the spying issue a few years ago, and 'deflategate' still hot, it is clear that Roethlisberger is implying foul play without actually saying. I would say, based on Pat history there someone may need to look into it but with how the NFL has handled cheating before, I don't think anything will come of it.

    The NFL should have cracked down on the Patriots' cheating ways years ago. Now they are a monster in the league that the NFL is partially responsible for creating. If you completely expose the Pats for the cheaters that everyone pretty much knows that they are, then the NFL will have to expose that they themselves have a part in letting it happen over the years.

    I think they are scared to death to do that.
