Here is a tweet from Lindsay Jones prior to the start of the Chargers game updating that:
One of the main issues the team had with Joe Mays was he completely blew calls and adjustments against New England. He had them completely out of alignment all day long.

Woodyard would wear the communication helmet because Brooking isn't in the nickle defense!
They can't be swapping helmets every few plays bud
