Cornerback Richard Sherman’s play is one of the reasons that many people think the Seahawks will be playing in MetLife Stadium in February.
His play at MetLife Stadium last weekend is one of the reasons why the Seahawks shut out the Giants. It’s also the reason he’s the NFC defensive player of the week.
Sherman was on the receiving end of two of Eli Manning’s five interceptions and added three pass breakups and two tackles to help keep the Giants offense from sniffing the end zone. Sherman now has 14 interceptions over the last two seasons, more than anyone else in the league.
It’s the third time that Sherman has been the NFC defensive player of the week, which is the most of any Seahawks cornerback. There will likely be more accolades coming Sherman’s way once the season comes to an end, although he’s surely hoping that he’ll have to pass on a Pro Bowl selection this year.
