Vincent Tobias Evans (born June 14, 1955 in Greensboro, North Carolina) is a former professional American football quarterback who was selected by the Chicago Bears in the sixth round (140th overall pick) of the 1977 NFL Draft. Evans, who played collegiately at USC, played for the Bears, the USFL's Chicago Blitz and Denver Gold, and for the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders in a career that spanned nearly 20 years from 1977 to 1995. Evans is the only player of the Chicago Bears to score a perfect quarterback rating in a game, doing so against the Green Bay Packers in 1980, completing 18 of 22 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns. The game marked the first time since 1970 that a Bears quarterback threw for more than 300 yards.[1] Evans has three children: son Vincent Jr., son Noah who is currently a wide receiver at Whittier Christian High School, and daughter Krista.

In 1976 he threw for 1,440 yards with 10 TD vs 6 INT. He also completed 53.7% of his passes.[2]
