Evans is on his way towards another 1,000 yard season, and if he gets there this season, he will join A.J. Green and Randy Moss as the only players in NFL history to have that accomplishment in their first four years in the NFL.
The match up with rookie corner Marshon Lattimore could be the key matchup of the game. Lattimore has been shadowing the other teams top wide receiver in many of the Saints games this season. Evans has been on a tear as of late and could abuse the young corner as he has most of the leagues defenders this year to the tune of 519 yards on 39 receptions.
