NFL Week 4 overreactions: Eagles make claim for beast of the NFC least
SportsPulse: The first quarter of the NFL season is nearly in the books and it’s the first time with confidence we think we know where everyone stands. Mackenzie Salmon “overreacts” to the biggest storylines from Week 4.
After the Rams topped the Giants 17-9 on Sunday, Los Angeles cornerback Jalen Ramsey met at midfield and fought with New York receiver Golden Tate.
As the game ended, the FOX television cameras showed Rams coach Sean McVay going to midfield to meet with Giants coach Joe Judge.
According to the Associated Press, both players took swings at each other almost immediately and then fell toward the turf as teammates attempted to break the two apart.
Earlier in the game, after Tate caught a pass in the left flat, Ramsey delivered a big tackle in which he drove Tate into the ground.

There may be more to the Ramsey-Tate feud.
According to the New York Post, Ramsey is the father of two of Tate’s nieces and he ended a relationship with Tate’s sister, Breanna Tate, during her pregnancy last year.
“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,” Tate previously told the New York Post.
Neither Ramsey nor Tate spoke with the media after the game.
“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.”
Said Rams coach Sean McVay: “I was shaking hands and, you know, I just kind of got in the middle. Fortunately, got it broken up and nothing occurred from there.”
In the game, Tate caught four of six targets for 20 yards. Ramsey posted five total tackles, including the tackle for loss against Tate.
