WATCH: Bucs WR Mike Evans takes brutal hit on interception return

While blindside hits have mostly been eliminated from the game, every once in a while you see one that isn’t helmet to helmet, but still just as brutal. Mike Evans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a big wideout and one of the best weapons for quarterback Jameis Winston. While his physicality can be an asset, dishing it out may not be the same as getting it in return. Ouch. That...
