Generally in the NFL, it’s rare enough to see a 2-point conversion attempt anymore, with the exception of times of desperation. It’s even rarer to see them completed. Last time the Detroit Lions played the Green Bay Packers, fans were treated to both, courtesy of Golden Tate.
After the snap and a handoff, Tate got to show off his throwing arm to the crowd, and found Matthew Stafford in the end zone for the 2 point completion.

Who says one man can’t do it all? Tate sure seems to be able to.
Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford ‘fires back’ at Boomer Esiason following criticism
On Thursday afternoon, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason joined The Valenti Show on 97.1 The Ticket and talked to host Mike Valenti about Detroit Lions quarterback, Matthew Stafford.
Specifically, Esiason questioned Stafford’s leadership abilities.
“Matthew Stafford is a great QB, he can throw it with anybody. But I want Matt Patricia to hold him accountable. You know, that it’s not gonna be all about you in the fourth quarter, son. I need you to be careful, I need you to be energetic. One of the reasons why I think Tom Brady screams a lot on the sideline is because I think he tries to whip himself up into a frenzy. I don’t see that from Matthew. I see a lot of Eli Manning in Matthew, like ‘oh it’s ok’… No it’s not ok. It’s your team and you have to get your guys to believe in you and that you’re gonna win. I think Matt Patricia being around Tom Brady all those years knows what consonant professional is watching the greatest of all time. He’s gotta try and impart some of that wisdom on Matthew and hopefully, Matthew will buy into it, and he’ll buy into what his coach is selling. And not be a locker room lawyer… and be a locker room leader.”
