PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - If there is one lesson to be learned from the Steelers' win over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, it's to never interrupt head coach Mike Tomlin at halftime. 

While Tomlin was in the tunnel walking from end-to-end, he was addressed by a spectator on the side underneath Mercedes-Benz Stadium. As he was reading a paper, Tomlin looked up at the spectator and did not hold back with his response. (WARNING: Graphic language below)

According to the spectator who tried to get Tomlin's attention, he said the suite he was in stands next to the players' walkway. In the video, on the other side looks like another suite of the same kind.

The Steelers were in the middle of a tough matchup with the Falcons, which saw the black-and-gold come out victorious, 19-16. QB Kenny Pickett threw for 197 yards and one TD. While LB T.J. Watt is off to a slow start since returning from an injury, Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick secured the game with a late interception.
