Mike Evans becomes first Bucs player since 1985 with 3 TD catches in a game
After getting off to an unimpressive 1-1 start, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came out on fire on Sunday with wide receiver Mike Evans catching three touchdown passes from Jameis Winston. Evans became the first Buccaneers receiver to accomplish this since 1985, and did so all in the first half against the New York Giants.
With only hauling in 6 receptions in the last two games, Evans exceeded that with seven through the first two quarters.

It’s no secret that when Winston plays well, and isn’t throwing the ball to the other team, Evans can get his opportunity to show why he was so highly coveted coming out of Texas A&M and was selected seventh overall in 2014.
Winston to Evans can be one of the most deadly combinations in the league when the offense is grooving, and with Bruce Arians now at the helm this could be a sign of things to come.
