The New York Giants offense is one of the worst in the NFL. It currently ranks No. 31 in the NFL in points per game, in front of only the New York Jets. Whether you want to blame the offensive line, the play-calling, the poor play of quarterback Daniel Jones or the loss of star running back Saquon Barkley (all of those deserve some blame), it's a rough scene.

Golden Tate, the team's No. 1 wide receiver, or at least thought to be coming into the season, has also struggled this season, but it might not be entirely his fault, at least according to his wife that is.

Following the Giants' loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tate's lack of targets, despite being "wide open" a lot, the former Notre Dame wide receiver's wife went on a full rant about it on her Instagram.

While we haven't reviewed the tape to validate her claims entirely, she does have a point around the lack of targets. Tate didn't catch a pass until the second half of the game and only received 3 targets in total. His second and only other catch was an impressive TD catch late in the game to give the Giants a chance to tie the game on a 2-point conversion. They failed to convert on a controversial no-call on debatable pass interference.

Tate has always been a reliable receiver throughout his career and has surely proven he can explode at times when given the chance. How much of his down numbers in 2020 are his blame can't exactly be determined, but after last night, we surely know where wife stands.
