Vikings continue to trust Xavier Rhodes against Lions’ Calvin Johnson

By akrammer@1500espn.com

MINNEAPOLIS — Xavier Rhodes didn’t neutralize Calvin Johnson, but he ‘limited’ him to 10 catches for 83 yards.

And the Vikings (1-1) were very pleased, especially after coming away with a 26-16 win at TCF Bank Stadium over the Detroit Lions (0-2). Though one of Rhodes’ three penalties of the day negated safety Harrison Smith’s interception, Smith didn’t have an ill word to say about Rhodes’ play.

“He did awesome,” Smith said. “That’s what we expect out of Xavier and that’s what Xavier expects out of himself. He’s that good.”

Twice has Johnson…
