Only one year after Deflate-Gate, the 2015 AFC Championship Game is experiencing the New England Patriots having their Microsoft Surface’s not working.
Oh no. Don’t tell me “Tablet-Gate” is coming our way following the conclusion of the 2015 AFC Championship Game.
During a portion of the first half in Denver, the New England Patriots were fuming over the fact that their Microsoft Surface Tablets weren’t working on the sidelines. Meanwhile, the Broncos’ Tablets were working just fine.
And of course, only 12 months fresh off of Deflate-Gate in last year’s title game, Twitter overreacted in a major way following this news:

The issue was quickly fixed:
CBS: Tablets are "100 percent working" for the #Patriots now. Phew.
