Three days later, Xavier Rhodes is still living rent free in his head

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings dismantled the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-17, and in all three phases of the game, the consensus was the Vikings dominated the Bucs.

Unless you’re Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans, who was largely matched up on Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes.

Rhodes has been dominant this year, shutting down three of the best WR’s in the NFL, to include Michael Thomas of New Orleans and Antonio Brown of the Steelers prior to shutting down Evans on Sunday.

How good has Rhodes been? This good:
