After reviewing game films of last week's Steelers loss, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin filed cheating charges with the NFL league offices, claiming the Patriots used 11 players on a Rob Gronkowski touchdown. Gronkowski was left uncovered by the Steelers, allowing the Patriots an easy first half touchdown. Tomlin later withdrew the complaint when the league offices reminded him that teams were allowed (and in fact encouraged) to field 11 players. Tomlin seemed unaware of this league rule, often times fielding only 10 players during the game.
