As Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey and New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate await word from the NFL on possible fines for their post-game fight after the Rams’ 17-9 win on Sunday, the Giants have pointed the finger at Ramsey.
According to ESPN, head coach Joe Judge said the Giants believe Ramsey threw the first punch to start the fight, which occurred immediately after the game, and Tate was defending himself.
“Look, all I have to say is the account I got from a number of our players — there is a history obviously between them, and there was a punch thrown,” Judge said via ESPN.com. “Golden was defending himself. I was told he wasn’t the one who threw the punch. And everybody involved was trying to break it up.”

Ramsey and Tate have a personal history. Ramsey has two children with Tate’s sister, Breanna Tate.
On Monday, Rams coach Sean McVay said he wasn’t going to get into the “he said, she said” part of the dispute.
The NFL Network has reported that the league is looking into the matter and no suspensions are expected, but there could be possible fines. If Ramsey is ruled as the person who started the fight, he could be facing a stiff penalty.
