After 10 seasons in the NFL, wide receiver Golden Tate is still going strong. He continues to beat defenses, and Tate has never been shy to let the other team know about it. A classic example of this was back when he was a member of the Seattle Seahawks and he embarrassed the then-St. Louis Rams defense.

In his second professional season, Russell Wilson was back to pass for the Seahawks. He let the ball fly in Tate's direction, but Janoris Jenkins was is great position to make a play. Tate came back to the ball and undercut Jenkins for the catch, then was all alone during his run to the end zone.

Tate mocked the defense, as he slowed up and waved goodbye to the defender, which brought a taunting penalty, but he still got into the end zone for six. The result was an 80-yard touchdown. This marked Tate's career-long, which still holds strong today. The 80-yard pass also continues to be Wilson's career-long, though he has done it again since.

The wide receiver was MVP for the Seahawks that day, finishing the game with five receptions for 93 yards and two touchdowns.
