The NFC Championship game is just around the corner. Eagles vs Vikings. Alshon Jeffery vs Xavier Rhodes. Who has the advantage? Well, the duo played each other twice last season. It’s time to take a look at the eye in the sky once again!

The Vikings defense has come on leaps and bounds over the last two years and ranked as the NFL’s best this season. Last year as a member of the Chicago Bears, Alshon Jeffery experienced this tenacity not once, but twice. In both games combined, Jeffery amassed 73 yards.
