Jameis Winston on sideline in second half after hard hits by Saints

Watch Jameis Winston's bizarre pregame speech

Lattimore responded by shoving Winston.

The Bucs are now trailing the Saints 30-3, so it's pretty obvious why Evans was frustrated.

Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Winston in the second half, but he could not generate any offense. His Bucs have gone 2-6. Evans was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but stayed in the game. Receiver Mike Evans was flagged for leveling Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore, a vicious hit from behind, after a play. As the scuffle was broken up, Saints coach Sean Payton marched halfway across the field, gesturing angrily at the Tampa Bay bench before officials chased him back to the Saints' sideline.

First, Hardee came in clean up the middle for a smothering block on punter Bryan Anger. New Orleans added two touchdowns in a span of:20 seconds in the third quarter to pad the lead to 30-3 as the Saints didn't look back. The ball bounced high into the air and directly into Hardee's arms at the 7-yard line, and he raced in untouched.

Lutz also missed a field goal from 43 yards.

Buccaneers: In addition to Winston's and Gholston's injuries, left tackle Donovan Smith went out with a knee injury.

In dominating the game, the Saints (6-2) knocked out Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston late in the first half.

Up next is a trip to Buffalo that should tell us even more about what the Saints are made of in a matchup of two of the league's surprise teams of 2017.
