Bill Belichick is usually a man of few words, especially after a loss, but the New England Patriots' head coach apparently went out of his way to speak to a Pittsburgh Steelers player on Sunday night.

The legendary NFL head coach singled out Steelers' wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster following Pittsburgh's win over New England.

Smith-Schuster had four catches for 40 yards during Sunday's game. He's been one of the best wide receivers in the league this year, totaling more than 1,200 yards and 6 touchdowns.

"Crazy to have Coach Belichick, a legendary coach I’ve watched my whole life, come up to me after the game and tell me he respects my game and how I play!!!" Smith-Schuster tweeted.

That had to have been a pretty cool moment for the Steelers' young wide receiver.

We could see these two teams meeting up in the playoffs in a couple of weeks, too.

New England and Pittsburgh are currently the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds in the AFC's race.
