Video appears to show laser pointer in Tom Brady’s face during AFC Championship

Tom Brady

Tom Brady had to contend with a hostile crowd at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday night as he helped the New England Patriots clinch yet another AFC title, and it appears at least one fan may have brought more than just noise.

William Joy of KMBC in Missouri shared some clips on Monday that were taken by the network’s photographer during New England’s overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs, and they appeared to show a green laser being pointed in Brady’s face. The most obvious time was right after the call on Julian Edelman’s muffed punt was overturned.

Joy noted that the green light was seen at least one other time on a Brady pass to Chris Hogan, which was initially ruled a completion but also overturned upon review.

There was no mention of the laser pointer after the game, so it’s possible Brady didn’t even notice it. We saw something similar happen during an NFL game in Mexico two years ago, and the quarterback who was targeted said it impacted his performance.

The NFL and the Chiefs will likely investigate the incident to see if they can determine who was responsible.
