Clinton Portis had the most rushing yards in a game while he was hungover. They had "rookie night" the night before the last game in 2002.
Counter that with the performance of Jay Cutler in 2008 vs Oakland at home. He was allegedly spotted out the night before, drinking (with the beetus no less), and turned in a sh*t game.
Guess it totally depends on the player.
On Portis, I did see him a few times out at clubs; during the summer though. I was pretty impressed given that it was summer time that I never saw a drink in his hand.
