A report surfaced from Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer Sunday morning indicating that the New York Giants have filed a complaint with the NFL that the Pittsburgh Steelers were using under-inflated footballs in last week’s game.
It was a shocking report, one that brought back memories of the entire Deflategate disaster the NFL had dropped the ball on for the past several months.
Now, the NFL itself is responding to Glazer’s report.

That couldn’t be any more clear. The NFL is saying that no formal complaint has been filed by the Giants. More than that, the league made sure to publicly refute the report that the footballs were not up NFL requirements.
For his part, Glazer is doubling down on his report.
NFL correct in saying no FORMAL complaint was FILED, Giants tested balls & informed the NFL they were under legal limit. Giants confirmed

There’s sure going to be a lot more come out in regards to this.
