Video: Golden Tate lays out Cowboys’ Sean Lee
Tate even celebrated after the hit, crawling to the ground and then pointing to his name on the jersey.
Not sure it was right to celebrate a hit where the player didn’t even know it was coming? Then again, Tate is a wide receiver.
Lee would be taken off the field and was checked out, he would return.
No penalty was called, although many believed it was.
Tate even started trending on Twitter as fans voiced their opinions.
@NYs_ambassador “Golden Tate channeled his inner Hines Ward!!”
@kyahnd “Golden Tate just threw the block of the season.”
@DavMApp “I can’t believe Golden Tate got away with that. #PieceofJunk”
Mike Pereira stated on Twitter “The hit on Lee is an illegal blindside block. Lee is considered defenseless, which means you can’t lower your head & hit in head/neck area.”
