Evans ran up from behind and knocked over Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore after a confrontation between Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, who was on the sideline because of a sore shoulder, and Lattimore.

Evans was called for a 15-yard personal foul penalty but was not ejected from the game.

Tamp Bay ultimately dropped the game 30-10 and fell to 2-6 on the season.

Evans was only penalized Sunday for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Ezekiel Elliott explains why he won't give up his suspension battle vs
The 2016 Rookie of the Year's Cowboys, at 4-3, are chasing the first-place Eagles in the NFC East. However, the Cowboys are approaching nail-biting territory in regards to Elliott.

After what happened in Week 9, though, that's not enough for coach Sean Payton. But Mike Evans escalated the situation from bad to worse in the third quarter. A Saints player then tackled Evans to get him off Lattimore.

Evans will appeal the suspension, a source told ESPN's Jenna Laine. Lattimore turned and pushed Winston with one hand. "Then Mike Evans came and snapped me from behind".

The Bucs, who will also be without Winston, host the New York Jets on Monday. I was glad he wasn't ejected. "That goes against everything you would want your team to stand for". The visual of Evans' shove of Lattimore can be seen at about the 13-second mark of the video. "The league's going to do what they're going to do", he said. "I should have just shoved him away to try to break it up".
