There was great news followed by a scare for the Tampa Bay Bucs on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
Wideout Mike Evans became the first NFL player to have 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first seven seasons.
Then, one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets appeared to injure a knee as he fell to the turf near the end of the first quarter.
