John Harbaugh, Mike Tomlin have terse exchange

It won't rival what his brother pulled off in a similar situation last season, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh had his own terse exchange with a colleague Sunday in Baltimore.

On NFL Network
NFL Replay will re-air the Pittsburgh Steelers' 23-20 win over the Baltimore  Ravens in Week 13 on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. ET.

Seconds after Shaun Suisham booted the Steelers to a 23-20 upset win over the Ravens, CBS cameras captured Harbaugh and Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin approaching each other at midfield for the customary postgame handshake.

As the two converged, Harbaugh said "congratulations" to Tomlin, who already was looking toward Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco as the two shook hands.

As Tomlin veered to his left, Harbaugh called out, "Hey, hey, hey," getting Tomlin's attention. Harbaugh appeared to say something else to Tomlin, who responded, "Thank you, good job," before making a hasty exit.

Harbaugh eyed Tomlin as the Steelers coach walked away, appearing to be put off by the coach's terseness.

Check out the Larry David-style awkwardness in the above video.
