Antonio Smith was suspicious of how the New England Patriots were able to complete a comeback victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday.
“You can tell they changed their scheme in the second half,” Smith said, via the Houston Chronicle. “It's miraculous they changed some things on offense that keyed on what we put on this week to stop what they were doing. They did things they never did all year before. It was a specific thing that was important to what we were going to do today, as to how we were going to call the defense. We'd not ever did it before, and they never changed like that before. It just let me know that something wasn't right.
“Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are among the best at their craft because they work so hard at their craft. ... Either teams are spying on us or something's going on.”
The Patriots lost a draft pick for the Spygate scandal in 2007.
“Truthfully, we just played a little bit better in the second half,” Brady told WEEI. “We've kind of been through a lot of this before, so I don't really think much of it, truthfully. I just kind of have moved on."
"Yeah, I saw [Smith's comments]," said Belichick. "I don't have any comment on them. That's a league matter."
