Marshon Lattimore and Leonard Fournette both were involved in a tussle when receiver Mike Evans decided to intervene. Evans pushed aside Marshon Lattimore and put him on the ground.

Tom Brady in a statement has said that the suspension for Mike Evans was a bit harsh and that sometimes emotions can get the better of you. He said that it means everything to him that Evans came out to defend him.

I think just sometimes the emotions get the best of us, and I love Mike. And the fact that Mike would come out there to defend me means everything in the world to me as a teammate and a friend,” Brady said.

And Mike knows how I feel about him. So in the end, emotions are a part of sports. Sometimes they boil over, and they obviously did (Sunday), and it’s an unfortunate circumstance. I don’t think it deserved any type of suspension; I think that’s ridiculous. Hopefully we can move past it and get to a better place.”
