Marshon Lattimore flashes brilliant coverage, denies big gain in one-on-one coverage vs Tampa Bay
Even though the Buccanneers-Saints playoff game is low-scoring so far, there are still some great plays happening in it.
Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore had some outstanding coverage on Bucs receiver Mike Evans as he denied him a long catch:

It’s another great play for Lattimore this season as he’s been electric in the Saints secondary. He finished the regular season with 62 total tackles (52 solo) with two interceptions and 11 passes defended. In the Saints playoff game last weekend against the Bears, he had two tackles with two passes defended.
2020 was the best season for his career as those 62 total tackles were a career-high. His career-high in interceptions came in his rookie season (2017) when he had five with one of them being a pick-six. That was also the season where he had his career-high in passes defended (18) which still stands today.
New Orleans currently leads Tampa Bay 13-10 and the game is currently being televised by FOX.
