CB Richard Sherman

We don’t see Sherman shadow enemy WR’s much, in fact the last time I recall him doing it was against San Francisco’s Anquan Boldin in 2013, but this might be the perfect opportunity for him to do it again. We’ve already seen the Seahawks use him in different ways this year than ever before, including having him work the slot against the Rams. Even if Sherman stays on the right side where he typically roams, the Lions will be throwing the ball a lot. Stafford’s accuracy isn’t any better today than it has been his entire career, and he’s already thrown 5 INT’s this year. Sherman hasn’t had any highlight-reel plays yet in 2015. This could be his chance.
