“He know he gonna have to see me.” That was New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate back in October of last year talking about Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey. On Sunday, Tate kept his word.
While Tate and Ramsey kept things cordial during regulation, the same cannot be said about the postgame festivities. While other players took to midfield to exchange pleasantries, Tate and Ramsey exchanged blows.
Following the conclusion of the Rams’ 17-9 victory over Big Blue, “Ramsey and Tate walked toward each other after the final whistle. They both took swings almost simultaneously and then went down in a heap,” per AP’s Greg Beacham.

Tate-Ramsey Feud Stems From CB’s Relationship With WR’s Sister
Tate’s bad blood for Ramsey dates back to a falling-out the cornerback had with the wideout’s sister approximately a year ago. According to USA Today, Ramsey “publicly acknowledged dumping Tate’s pregnant sister, Breanna, in a since-deleted Instagram post.” Ramsey, who already had one other child with Breanna, left Tate’s sister for Las Vegas-based dancer, Monica Giavanna.
Tate spoke to the New York Post during the initial falling-out last October, stating “I’m not happy at all with the disrespect that he’s shown towards my sister, and the things he’s done in the past, but I don’t really want to go too much into it.”
He also added this aforementioned gem of a tweet in response to a Twitter follower essentially telling Tate he should put Ramsey in his place.
He know he gonna have to see me.

Ramsey initially fired back with this tweet below, but ultimately deleted the response:
We live in a society where ignorant people feel that they are owed an explanation of what goes on in our day-to-day lives … and why we make the decisions we make … we don’t have to answer to anyone but the man above. [Expletive] is beyond overrated.
Ramsey Delivers Monstrous Hit on Tate
While it’s unclear who got the best of the other following the game, it’s safe to say Ramsey had the upper hand during the 60 minutes prior. The Rams handed the Giants their fourth loss on the season, limiting the G-Men’s offense to just nine points on the day. Tate’s production was just as underwhelming. The veteran wideout collected four receptions for 20 receiving yards, ranking fifth amongst an underperforming and undermanned wide receiver group.
Yet, despite postgame blows and in-game beatdown, Ramsey’s biggest haymaker came in the fourth quarter when he tossed aside a Giants would-be blocker to deliver a monstrous hit on Tate, lifting him from the ground before piledriving him into the dirt.
Jalen Ramsey makes an unreal play 😳

Despite Big Blue’s at times atrocious play this season, they are still just one game out of first place in what is a crapshoot of a division. The Giants will have a chance to inch out of the cellars of the NFC East in Week 5 against a struggling Dallas Cowboys team.
