Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he's not afraid to face Washington Redskins' wide receivers, and he shouldn't be.
"None of them," Sherman told USA TODAY Sports.
The Redskins top three receivers are Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson. Garcon leads the Redskins in receiving yards with 633, while Moss leads the team with eight touchdowns.
Sherman, who was tied for second in the NFL with eight interceptions in the regular season, will have some help Sunday as Brandon Browner returns from a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
"His energy and physicality are going to be huge lifts for us in the secondary," Sherman said. "I'm sure he's going to make an impact on this game."
Many believe Sherman should have also been suspended for testing positive for a banned substance. But he appealed, despite knowing if he had lost the appeal he would have to sit out the playoffs.
However, Sherman won the appeal because of improper handling of his urine sample.
"Everybody has haters," Sherman said. "People think Jesus didn't exist. They think he wasn't a miracle worker. There are people who say he didn't walk on water, or he only walked on water because he couldn't swim. Those people's opinions mean dirt to me."
