Mike Evans shocked he wasn’t ejected for shot on Marshon Lattimore
Mike Evans and Jameis Winston got into it with Marshon Lattimore during Sunday’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers-New Orleans Saints game, and Evans in particular was lucky to avoid an ejection. Even he recognized that.
Winston was not playing in the second half of the game after being replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick due to a shoulder issue that’s been bothering him. That didn’t stop the QB from poking Lattimore after a play. Lattimore responded by pushing Winston, and then came Evans out of nowhere with a huge push.

It’s hard to believe Evans wasn’t tossed, especially during a one-sided game where things can get out of hand if officials aren’t careful.
Fighting seems to be the theme on Sunday, as AJ Green and Jalen Ramsey were tossed from their game for fighting.
