After catching the game-winning touchdown against the Panthers in Week 17, Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has been nominated for the Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week Award. Evans caught a 10-yard touchdown from Jameis Winston to break a 10-10 tie with 3:13 to play in the game. Tampa Bay would ultimately win, 17-16. Evans finished the game with five catches for 65 yards on 11 targets.
Evans' touchdown reception was his 12th of the season, tying a Buccaneer single-season record – one that he already owns. Evans also caught 12 touchdown passes in 2014, his rookie year. The third-year pro finished 2016 with 96 catches for 1,321 yards, both career-highs.
Also nominated for the Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week award are Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Steelers quarterback Landry Jones, Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Titans defensive end Jurrell Casey.
The Clutch Performer of the Week award is determined by a fan vote, so Buccaneer fans are encouraged to vote for Evans early and often. To vote for him, click HERE.
