The NFL handed down the penalties to the New England Patriots for their television crew’s filming the field and sideline during a Dec. 8 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns, league sources tell ESPN.
In addition, the Patriots’ television production crews will not be allowed to shoot any games during the 2020 season, and senior club officials will undergo required training on league operation and game policies.
NFL spokesperson Michael Signora confirmed the punishments on Sunday night after ESPN broke the news.
