Richard Sherman: NFC Defensive Player Of the Month

Seahawks_Richard_Sherman_2012Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman hasn’t been shy when it comes to talking about his belief that he ranks at the top of the list of cornerbacks in the NFL right now and he put together a September that backed up his claims.

Sherman helped the Seahawks defense allow 47 points across four games, all of which were Seattle victories, and has been named the NFC defensive player of the month as a result. The Seattle defense has held opposing passers to a completion percentage of 56.5 percent and the fourth-lowest passing yards per game through the first four weeks.
