Xavier Rhodes was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after the Vikings’ 30-24 win against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

It’s Rhodes’ first career NFC defender of the week honor, fittingly paired with his first two-interception game and first NFL touchdown. His 100-yard return of a Carson Palmer pass proved to be the difference, helping the Vikings break a four-game losing streak.

Rhodes leads the Vikings with four interceptions, which is tied for fourth among all NFL defenders.
