The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly used a deflated football during Thursday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, which means they soon should feel the wrath of the NFL.

According to Howard Eskin of WIP, the Pittsburgh Steelers were discovered to be in possession of an underinflated football in their preseason opener at Philadelphia.

"All footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process and all proper procedures were followed", NFL vice president of football communications Michael Signora said in a statement. The ball was found during the third quarter when Steelers third-round rookie quarterback Mason Rudolph at the helm.

The NFL has new rules in place on how balls are monitored following the "Deflategate" incident of a few years ago, when the Patriots were found to have deflated some balls during the AFC Championship Game. The Patriots quarterback was handed a four-game suspension, while the team was stripped two draft picks and fined $1 million.
