​The ​NFL is investigating an incident which occurred during the ​AFC Championship bout between the ​New England Patriots and ​Kansas City Chiefs in which a green light, presumably from a ​laser pointer, was spotted on Tom Brady's upper body and face. The incident occurred during the fourth quarter of the Patriots' overtime win and now the NFL will launch an investigation in order to discover who was pointing the laser. 

While the outcome of the game was seemingly not impacted by the laser antics, the NFL is still looking to investigate the incident. ​Brady was unharmed but a laser pointer can cause damage to an individual if it is shined into their eyes. 


Reports suggest that Brady was seen with the laser shining at him at least three times during the fourth quarter. A green beam was seen cast on to Brady's face just a play before he threw an interception to Chiefs' safety Daniel Sorensen. 

The laser was initially identified by KMBC which shared the images on social media. The NFL aren't the only ones set to investigate the incident as the Kansas City police department will also be looking into it.
