Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams called New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a cheater while responding to a Twitter user who claimed Belichick owned Pittsburgh. 

Williams finished last season with 907 yards and 11 touchdowns while 4.5 yards per attempt while filling in for the injured Le'Veon Bell.

The Steelers lost to the Patriots 28–21 in the opening week of the 2015 season. Belichick owns an 8–3 career record against the Steelers since his arrival in New ENgland in 2000.

What must Steelers do to remain favorites in ’16?

Williams's comments on Belichick come just one day after he also tweeted that quarterback Tom Brady may be the only player on the Patriots that likes Belichick.

The Steelers finished the year 10–6 and lost in the Divisional Round of the playoffs to the eventual Super Bowl 50 champion Denver Broncos.
