Antonio Smith 'very suspicious' of Patriots after loss

Antonio Smith did everything short of accusing the Patriots of cheating during Houston's Week 13 loss to New England.

The Texans defensive end told ESPN's Tania Ganguli that he was "very suspicious" of how the Patriots prepared for the game, accusing them of making some head-scratching adjustments in the game.

Either teams are spying on us or scouting us...I'm very suspicious. I just think it will be a big coincidence if that just happened by chance. I don't know for sure, but I just know it was something that we practiced this week.

Smith said there were parts of the defensive game plan that weren't available in previous weeks on film, but that somehow the Patriots knew were coming.

However, Smith wasn't willing to state specifics.

I can't tell you an example because it's G15 classified. When you watch film of the team do something a certain way all the time no matter what team they play—it's been 12 games played and they always did it—and then all of a sudden it's changed? It was pretty clever and pretty suspicious.

Smith never actually accused the Patriots of cheating. But he might as well have.
