It had to happen.
Following Eric Ebron‘s touchdown catch on Saturday for the Indianapolis Colts, I just had a feeling that Ebron’s fellow former Detroit Lion Golden Tate would do the same thing on Sunday as his Philadelphia Eagles battled the Chicago Bears in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs.
Well, I was right.
Take a look as Tate scores the game-winning touchdown with under a minute left in the game.

Following the touchdown grab by Tate, Twitter absolutely exploded!
Of course, Golden Tate has to catch the game-winning TD pass, because of course he does. He's not good enough for the Lions, but good enough for the defending Super Bowl champions.

It’s Jan. 6. The Lions are 6-10. The Eagles are 9-7, own the last wildcard spot and are still alive after Tate won them a playoff game.

Golden Tate, Ebron, I am telling you if Matthew Stafford went to another team he would win The Super Bowl. #lions1957
