A brawl erupted midfield at the end of Sunday’s NFL game Between New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams, over a long-running family feud between Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and the Giants wide receiver, Golden Tate.
Ramsey has two children with Tate’s sister, Breanna Tate, but the couple broke up while she was pregnant with their second child.
When Ramsey posted a photo on social media with his new girlfriend, dancer Monica Giavanna, last October, Golden Tate responded to a fan’s comment with ‘he know he gonna have to see me.’
Ramsey and Giavanna are now believed to have split up, as well.
And the personal animosity between the two players exploded after the game Sunday in which the Los Angeles Rams claimed a 17-9 victory over the New York Giants. Footage shows the Giants wide receiver and Rams cornerback exchanged blows near midfield and had to be separated by teammates and coaches.
Tate and Ramsey walked toward each other as the game ended and both took swings before going down to the turf. Ramsey reportedly, also waited outside of the locker room after the game for Tate, but they did not have the opportunity for a reprise.
Jalen Ramsey and Breanna Tate. Ramsey has two children with Tate’s sister, Breanna, but the couple broke up while she was pregnant with their second child.
The simmering feud surfaced last October, after Ramsey posted a photo on social media with his new girlfriend, dancer Monica Giavanna. When a fan commented on the picture, Golden Tate responded, ‘he know he gonna have to see me.’
Ramsey and Giavanna reportedly, have now split up, as well.
Tate told the New York Post last year he wasn’t happy with the disrespect that Ramsey had shown toward his sister.
He said: ‘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.’
In response, Ramsey thrash talked back, ‘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*** is beyond overrated.’
Breanna Tate who had been in a longtime relationship with Ramsey made no reference to the feud on Instagram in her last posting on September 26 on her second daughter’s first birthday.
For their part, both men were silent leading up to the game. After the brawl, neither man has posted on social media about the incident, with no comments to media after the game, either.
The situation was charged and Ramsey was seen pacing the field for 25 minutes after the game with a Rams assistant coach, perhaps to cool off or to avoid another confrontation near the team buses.
Ramsey reportedly, also waited outside of the locker room after the game for Tate.
‘Obviously we want to do our fighting between the whistles for 60 minutes,’ Giants coach Joe Judge said. ‘I have to talk to him. Golden is a competitive guy. We don´t want to have happen what did.’
Judge hinted that he spoke to Tate about the matchup with Ramsey leading up to the game, but did not delve into the details of the conversations.
For his part, Rams coach Sean McVay said he wasn’t sure what happened.
‘I was shaking hands and, you know, I just kind of got in the middle,’ he said. ‘Fortunately, got it broken up and nothing occurred from there.’
Even players who were in the middle of the scrum didn’t have much to say. Giants center Nick Gates, who was separating coaches and teammates from each other, said he was just trying to protect teammates.
Tate finished with four receptions for 20 yards. He caught a quick pass in the left flat during the fourth quarter but Ramsey laid a punishing hit on Tate for a 1-yard loss.
Ramsey signed a five-year, $105 million contract extension with the Rams before the start of the season. He is regarded as one of the bigger trash-talkers in the league. Although coaches have praised his increasing maturity, this is his second postgame incident with the Rams since he was acquired from Jacksonville last year.
Ramsey and Marcus Peters shouted at each other after the Ravens beat the Rams last year. Peters was traded to Baltimore after the Rams acquired Ramsey.
During his three seasons with Jacksonville, Ramsey was involved in fracases with Cincinnati’s A.J. Green and Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill
