Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church has a season-high nine tackles in Sunday's OT loss to the New Orleans Saints .
Cowboys fans are only going to remember the plays he didn't make though, as Church dropped a possible interception that hit him in the numbers and took a bad angle on C.J. Spiller in overtime, allowing the running back to streak by him for the game-ending touchdown. With 29 tackles through four games though, Church remains a stable individual defensive player asset.
"Man, I don't know this guy," Tate said Thursday, per ESPN. "I just now heard of him yesterday from this incident. He's trying to get on the scene, I guess. We'll see."
Church said Wednesday that Tate's hit "was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen." The hit led to a $21,000 fine for Tate, who hit Lee in the chest and chin with the crown of his helmet.
"We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and Sean," Church said. "He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just to give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'
"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules, within the rules."

"That was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen," Church told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and [teammate Sean Lee]. He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'
"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules."
"[McClain] was sensitive with it," owner Jerry Jones said of his linebacker's knee, "but he was able to finish. And that’s a good thing."
"[S]omebody stepped all over my calf with them cleats man, it hurts," Church said of his calf injury. "I took a couple of plays off and came back in, but I’ll be straight."
The pair of defenders will get a few extra days of rest before preparing for the team's Week 14 matchup with the Bears.
