Mike Evans had a huge game but still dropped 6 easy passes

Yesterday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have easily beat the New York Giants if Mike Evans caught all the balls thrown his way. The former Texas A&M University could have reeled in 14 receptions for around 250 yards, but had six key drops.

The Bucs wideout had eight catches for 152 yards, but left a lot of plays on the field. Evans was credited with six dropped passes by ESPN Stats & Info, which is the most in a single game by a single player in the last 10 years.

That is a lot of dropped passes, and even though it was a little wet, Evans understands he needs to get better at catching the ball in the rain.

“I don’t know what it is,” Evans said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “I’ve got to work on wet ball drills or something. I mean, the Giants receivers were catching them in the rain and I wasn’t and I live here. That’s unacceptable. I have to be better for this team. It was humid. It was wet, but it was humid and I kept sweating through my gloves. I put the rain gloves on and I dropped a third-down conversion and I had to keep changing them. The ball was too slick. That’s no excuse. I’ve got to catch those.”
