Sean McDermott cell phone

NFL coaches are not allowed to communicate using cell phones on the field during games, so some were alarmed to see Sean McDermott shown with a cell phone to his ear while headed to halftime of Sunday’s game between his Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots at Bills Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. But there is actually a good explanation for his usage.

Due to new social distancing guidelines, coaches conduct their halftime interviews via phone rather than in person. McDermott was talking with CBS reporter Evan Washburn, according to The Buffalo News. Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich was also seen doing the same, according to Pat McAfee.

So, no, the coaches were not cheating or doing anything illegal. They were following the new procedure. The only difference is this was the first time fans saw it happen.

The only other time we’ve seen cell phones involved in a game was when it was used for a touchdown celebration like this one.
