Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes has had some success against Falcons receiver Julio Jones. Jones says he won’t be concerned about that when they line up to face each other on Sunday. “[Xavier Rhodes] is a very confident guy,” Jones said Thursday, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We go out and hopefully we’ll get man-to-man. We’ll see. I don’t know how they are going to play me. They have a little tendency a little bit to cheat the safety to the star. But we’ll see Sunday.” We’ve seen Rhodes handle Jones, relative to the ability of other defensive backs to slow Jones down, in the past.
