Detroit Lions' Golden Tate: 'Our opponents know our plays'

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate believes that his side's opponents know what plays are running before they have happened.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate has claimed that his side's opponents have known what play they were running on offense before it occurred at times this season.

The Lions slumped to 0-3 as a result of their defeat to the Denver Broncos on Sunday and have mustered just 56 points this season.

Tate believes that his offense has become predictable because their opponents have known how to combat their plays before they were run by Matt Stafford.

"I've had a couple occasions in literally each game where they called out our play for one, then afterwards been like 'Hey, we knew what you guys were doing,'" Tate said on Detroit's 105.1 FM.

"I don't know how they know or what film they're watching that we're giving away. That's something we got to go back and watch our tendencies and figure out where we line up or how we line up or what formation or whatever it may be."

The Lions are next in action against the Seattle Seahawks.
