Jalen Ramsey and Golden Tate brought their family feud to the field.

Ramsey and Tate reportedly threw punches and ignited a postgame brawl Sunday between the Giants and Rams that escalated to include dozens of players and coaches pushing and shoving to clear the sea of bodies.

The only surprising thing is that it took four quarters for years of bad blood stemming from Ramsey’s perceived mistreatment of Tate’s sister to boil over, especially after Ramsey lifted Tate off his feet and drove him into the turf during the second half of the Rams’ 17-9 victory. The Fox broadcast went to commercial before the fight and returned with footage of other players mixing it up.

No other footage surfaced on the Internet immediately after the game but live reports from SoFi Stadium had Tate and Ramsey purposefully seeking each other out, both taking big swings and tumbling to the ground.

Ramsey was still dressed in full uniform and pacing on the field with his phone in hand about 25 minutes after others returned to the locker room. He tried to start a second confrontation by waiting for Tate outside the Giants postgame locker room, according to an ESPN report.

“To be honest with you, I don’t know what happened,” said Giants center Nick Gates, who was in the middle of clearing bodies. “Just protecting my teammates.”

Ramsey is the father of two of Tate’s young nieces but broke off a long-term relationship with Tate’s sister Breanna while she was pregnant last summer. When Ramsey posted to social media a photo with his new girlfriend last October, Tate made it publicly known he was circling their next head-to-head matchup.
