Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate got into a fight seconds after Sunday’s game at Sofi Stadium and had to be separated by teammates before things got too crazy.
Now we know what this fight was apparently about, and it was very personal – Ramsey has two kids with Tate’s sister, Breanna, and the couple broke up last year. Following the breakup, Tate told the New York Post: “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.”
Ramsey responded to that last year by saying:
“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. S—t is beyond overrated.”
Well, on Sunday they met on the field and Ramsey took Tate down with this powerful tackle:

Ramsey and Tate walked toward each other after the final whistle. They both took swings almost simultaneously and then went down in a heap. Their teammates pulled them apart.
