Detroit Lions have had a tough couple of weeks after tight loses and key injuries to stars such as leading receiver Calvin Johnson, but on Sunday, they pulled off their most impressive win of the 2014 NFL season to date.

Down 23-13 late in the fourth quarter, Golden Tate stepped up with arguably the best and most timely touchdown of the NFL season so far with a 74-yard epic score. See LINK HERE. But post-game, Tate took a shot at the Lions’ fans that left the stadium early.

Bizarre weekend for Tate

It was somewhat of a bizarre weekend for the Lions’ receiver Golden Tate. A trade between the New York Jets and his old team Seattle Seahawks opened up a can of worms.

The Seahawks decided to trade receiver Percy Harvin to the Jets last Friday, and following the trade, plenty of revelations managed to leak out of Seattle, with one of them claiming that Harvin had given Tate a black eye in practice shortly before the Seahawks' Super Bowl win in February.

Tate takes aim 

But rather than take a shot at the Seahawks and Harvin post-game on Sunday, Tate was more interested in taking a tongue-in-cheek shot at his own fans after Detroit's epic comeback.

“Golden Tate was animated with us post game. Asked about Seattle. He said it's in the past, that he's proud to be a Lion,” NFL insider Albert Breer explained on Twitter on Sunday. “Golden Tate: "the fans that left early, we don't appreciate that, though." Smiled as he said it,” Breer added.
