A fight emerged between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and host New Orleans Saints early in the fourth quarter Sunday afternoon.

After a third-down pass incompletion, Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore began to jaw at Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, with running back Leonard Fournette pushing Lattimore away and Lattimore pushing back. Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans joined the fray, shoved and leveled Lattimore, and engaged with other Saints before the dust settled.

Evans and Lattimore were ejected with 12:49 left in the game.

Evans led Tampa Bay with three receptions for 61 yards before his disqualification. Lattimore recorded two tackles and one pass defensed.

At the time of the ejection, the Saints and Buccaneers were tied at 3-3.
