Mike Evans is trying to argue that Xavier Rhodes didn't shut him down

Evans tweeted: "Rhodes were open for me."

After getting mostly shut down by Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes, Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans is claiming he could've had a much bigger game than he did on Sunday. 

The NFL tweeted out a graphic saying "Rhodes Closed," to which Evans responded

Evans had 7 receptions for 67 yards against the Vikings, but only 5 catches for 53 yards when he was covered by Rhodes. 

Pro Football Focus' film review suggests Rhodes held Tampa Bay's receivers to just 4 catches for 36 yards. 

Evans, to a certain extent, is correct that film doesn't lie. Just look at this
