A network cable malfunction caused the Patriots’ tablet issues in AFC Championship Game.
The issues were not directly caused by the tablets or the software that runs the tablets, the league said.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told reporters on Monday that issues with the tablets are a “pretty common problem.”
“We have ways of working through it,” Belichick said. “There’s really nothing you can do. It’s not like the headsets where the other sides are really affected. You deal with what you deal with.”
Belichick added that the team used printouts of pictures to look at formations when the tablets were malfunctioning.
