New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is usually a man of few words. But he had some choice ones for Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen.

Belichick challenged a play. Thielen, who felt that because of an injury to Patrick Chung, Belichick had more time than usual to review the play, made his feelings known. Belichick did the same.

We’re not exactly lip-readers here. But it sure didn’t look like Belichick was saying “On to Cincinnati.”

When this is over, we’re pretty sure that both Thielen and Belichick will downplay this. But this kind of emotion is not at all common from the coach.

Suddenly, we find ourselves wishing that the Vikings and Patriots played each other more.
