TAMPA, Fla. — For eight seasons, Mike Evans has been the heart of Tampa Bay's receiving core. And, during a Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants, Evans took his spot among the greats in franchise history.

In the third quarter of Monday's game, Evans caught his 72nd career touchdown - the most touchdowns caught by any Bucs receiver in franchise history.

The red zone pass from another football great, Tom Brady, helped Evans move past Mike Alstott for the record. It's Evans' 10th touchdown of the season. 

The Bucs are playing at home against the Giants, hoping to end a two-game skid.
