Rhodes Open

YOU NEED plenty of energy to keep up with Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes, both on the field and off—as our crew discovered when they spent the day with him for the latest installment of 24 Hours With ... on SI.TV. Despite battling hamstring and ankle injuries throughout the season, Rhodes, 28, has been a force in the secondary for the playoff-bound Vikings (p. 36), allowing just 42 receptions and 487 yards in coverage through Week 15. Two days before a matchup against the Lions, Rhodes completed an intense workout, including pilates, and then went looking for competition. He and his girlfriend, Brittney Jordan, headed to the bowling alley (with their custom balls and shoes, naturally). Xavier won. The day ended with Rhodes getting a haircut in his driveway from his pal Mr. Jimmy.
