Xavier Rhodes describes friendship with Steelers WR Antonio Brown

- One name the rest of the division has learned the hard way over the last few seasons is Xavier Rhodes.

The Vikings corner covers and stops almost any receiver put in his path, even if that receiver is longtime friend Antonio Brown. Brown and Rhodes grew up playing with each other in the same neighborhood.

"We always mess around, play around," said Rhodes. "It's going to be a good time, but at the same time it's going to be an emotional game because we always try to get the one-up on each other, play hard."

Rhodes explained more about their relationship with Fox 9's Dawn Mitchell before the game.
