Golden Tate went butt-first into the end zone to beat the Vikings

New, comment

It doesn’t matter how Tate got into the end zone, because his touchdown gave the Lions on overtime win.

Golden Tate scored a touchdown to put the Detroit Lions on top of the Minnesota Vikings in overtime, but it wasn’t just any old touchdown.

Tate hauls in the pass from Matthew Stafford on the sideline, gets both feet in, and then takes off toward the end zone.

He somehow manages to stay in bounds, breaks away from a Vikings defender, and then flips butt-first into the end zone, giving the Lions a 22-16 advantage and the win in overtime.
