While the infamous no-call in Sunday’s NFC championship game will not be reviewed at this time, an alleged laser that targeted Tom Brady will be.
According to ESPN, which cited a league spokesman, the NFL will “look into the report” from a Kansas City news station that a laser was flashed at the Patriots quarterback during the AFC championship game at Arrowhead Stadium.
KMBC-TV reporter William Joy posted a video on Twitter that appeared to show a green dot flickering near Brady’s face.
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

The Patriots acknowledged that they are aware of the report but declined to comment.
Despite the incident, Brady guided New England to a 37-31 overtime victory against the Chiefs to punch a ticket to the team’s third straight Super Bowl.
The Patriots will face the Rams in the championship game Feb. 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
