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:

Yesterday, the official NFL Twitter account had a pretty cool tweet highlighting what Rhodes has accomplished so far:
It was a neat graphic, it made the point, and it’s not inaccurate. Evan Evans was visibly frustrated on the sidelines late in the game:
67 yards, no TDs, and this. Yeah, Rhodes Open pic.twitter.com/ppa2RZuvsf— xtina (@cyvonne1229) September 27, 2017
But Mike Evans disagrees with all of this, you guys:
Rhodes were open for me. Film don't lie https://t.co/2trIeOQrPN— Mike Evans (@MikeEvans13_) September 27, 2017
Oh, okay Mike. See you next time. Might want to take a detour to Minnesota on your next trip though. We expect the Rhodes to be closed for quite awhile.
