They both protect and serve, but cops don't always agree. Especially when it comes to football.

The police department in Wyoming, Minnesota, took questions from Twitter users for #TalkingTuesday, and became embroiled in an unlikely – but good-natured – spat with counterparts in Denver, Colorado.

Probably unsurprisingly, it was about football, as the Denver cops – Broncos fans – engaged in some gentle trolling at the Minnesota Vikings' expense.

It doesn't matter how many Super Bowls you've won though, right now is not a good time to be ribbing the 5-0 Vikings, considering they are the only undefeated team in the NFL, while the Broncos have lost two in a row to fall to 4-2.

As such, Wyoming PD hit back.

Here's how it went:

Despite their difference when it comes to NFL, you couldn't help but notice the respect between the two departments.
