An epic moment occurred in a key moment in the 4th quarter in the Patriots vs Vikings game today as New England tried to challenge a 4th down conversion run by Minnesota. Pats Coach Bill Belichick had some extra time to decide to challenge as there was a player injured and finally tossed the challenge flag. Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen was close by barking at officials near the New England sideline. Thielen and Belichick exchange looks, and then Thielen says something, and then the Patriots coach very clearly seems to say, “shut the f*** up.”
Pats lost the challenge but went on to win in a huge victory to move to 9-3 and keep the #2 seed in the AFC.
From the lip-reading department:
Adam Thielen (yelling in referee's direction, close to Bill Belichick, after Belichick threw challenge flag but had extra time ase Patrick Chung was injured): "That's bull—"
Bill Belichick (looking in Thielen's direction): "Shut the f— up."
