1st UPDATE: 1:07 p.m. EST: Additional details from the Boston Globe.

“Last week the New York Giants got suspicious of the Pittsburgh Steelers during their game, so after two takeaways from the Steelers, the Giants actually tested two of the footballs on the sidelines to see if in fact they were deflated,” Glazer said on Fox’s NFL pregame show. “Two of the balls came in under.”

ORIGINAL POST: Here we go again.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a brief summary of the initial report from Jay Glazer.

The New York Giants alerted the NFL this week that the Steelers might have deflated footballs in last week’s game at Heinz Field, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.

Glazer reported today the Giants tested two balls that made their way to their sideline during the game and later sent them to the NFL for testing of PSI levels.

The Steelers declined comment on the report.
