A new chapter in the Mike Evans-Marshon Lattimore rivalry was written during Sunday's Tampa Bay Buccaneers-New Orleans Saints Week 2 matchup.

After Lattimore smothered Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller on an incomplete pass down the sideline in the fourth quarter, the Saints cornerback got into it with Tom Brady and Leonard Fournette.

Then, after Fournette and Lattimore began shoving one another, Evans ran into the scrum and body-checked Lattimore to the ground on a cheap shot that led to a benches-clearing brawl and both players being ejected.

Mike Evans &amp; Marcus Lattimore beef is one of the most underrated subplots in the league. They legit hate each other.

Jono Barnes @JonoBarnes

All joke aside the cheap shots Mike Evans STAY taking at Lattimore is a joke. Evans needs to be suspended MULTIPLE GAMES. This is his SECOND time doing this

Ahmed/The Ears/Symba FanπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡΄ @big_business_

Rob Maaddi @RobMaaddi

Evans also dropped Lattimore with a cheap shot during a game in 2017 when Saints quarterback Jameis Winston was still a member of the Buccaneers:

Not the first time Evans knocked down Lattimore...<a href="https://t.co/Ob1yLn5M9W">pic.twitter.com/Ob1yLn5M9W</a>

Evans caught three passes for 61 yards, and Lattimore posted two tackles before their ejections.

The Buccaneers and Saints don't meet again until Dec. 5 for a Monday Night Football matchup that should be one of the best of the 2022 campaign.
