Fox Sports aired a video this morning that appears to show a videographer for the New England Patriots illegally filming the Cincinnati Bengals at an earlier game this year. Have a watch:

The interaction between the Bengals security & patriots employee who took that video is crazy. My man was caught red-handed & was out of answers, lmao. Great job by @JayGlazer getting that footage.

Yeah. This isn’t a great look for the Patriots:
On the one hand, this video is pretty harmless. On the other: If the videographer really was in town taping a "video feature on an advanced scout" (like the Patriots claim) why would the video guy ever need to turn the camera toward the Bengals sidelines ??? https://t.co/5Zgsc1nwn8

The NFL is reportedly investigating the incident. From The Ringer:
The issue came to light during Bengals head coach Zac Taylor’s Monday press conference, when he was asked by Bengals radio analyst Dave Lapham about whether “the Patriots had a videographer up in the Bengals’ press box area, working with an advance scout that was taping video of the Bengals’ sideline” during Sunday’s Cincinnati-Cleveland game. Taylor responded that he was “aware there was an incident” and that the NFL was investigating. League officials have not yet commented.
Get ready for Spygate 2!
Get ready for Spygate 2. Fox’s ace NFL insider @JayGlazer will exclusively show tape of Patriots filming Bengals sideline on ‘Fox NFL Sunday.’ Back in 2007, The Glaze broke first Pats Spygate tape.

As for today’s game, the Patriots moved to 11-3 on the season with a 34-13 defeat of the now 1-13 Bengals. Imagine if the Pats get penalized for worrying about a one-win team?
FINAL: Patriots 34, Bengals 13
The Patriots improve to 11-3 and clinch a playoff spot. pic.twitter.com/2tguygbjMf
