The NFL is looking into a report that a green laser appeared to flash on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady a couple of times in Sunday’s AFC Championship game, Brian McCarthy, the league’s vice president of communications, confirmed Tuesday. McCarthy also confirmed NFL Security is taking point.

KMBC-TV in Kansas City, Mo., caught it on camera during the game.

The first incident came on the first play after Julian Edelman appeared to muff a punt, a play that was overturned on review.The second, according to KMBC reporter William Joy, came on a Brady pass to Chris Hogan, although it is not clear in the video that a laser is being pointed at Brady.


Brady was apparently not affected by the laser on either play.

Lasers being pointed on players during NFL games has happened twice before: Texans vs. Raiders in Mexico City in 2016 and Bills at Lions in 2014.
