SEATTLE -- As his career has progressed, Seattles Richard Sherman has become more adept at shadowing a specific wide receiver instead of concentrating on covering one side of the field.He may have quite the challenge coming up Sunday: Atlantas Julio Jones, just two weeks removed from racking up 300 yards receiving against Carolina.I watch the wide receiver play in Julio, hes one the very greatest football minds at his position. He has a real understanding of the game, the coverage, the leverage and that was one of the things when I first met Sherm, said Atlanta head coach and former Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. I was so impressed with his football knowledge growing stronger through the years. Thatll be a classic matchup that were looking forward to being a part of.Yes, even the coaches are excited to see how this one plays out.While its not certain Sherman will match up on Jones exclusively, there have been plenty of assumptions this week that that will be the case. And should they face off, there wont be any acrimony. Jones and Sherman have become friends off the field after meeting at the Pro Bowl.Hes a fascinating dude, Sherman said.Once criticized for only playing left cornerback, Sherman has taken on more responsibility for following the opponents top wide receiver in recent seasons. Among those hes chased around are Dez Bryant, Antonio Brown, Torrey Smith, A.J. Green and two weeks ago, Brandon Marshall.Marshall got the better of Sherman in the first half of the Week 4 meeting between the Jets and Seahawks. But Sherman came out on top , with Seattle winning 27-17 and Sherman having his first two-interception game since the 2014 season.Jones said he doesnt know what to expect from the Seahawks.If thats what they think is going to slow me down or give them the best chance at being successful, thats what theyre going to do. Im not their coach to decide that. Its whatever they do, Jones said. Im not calling anyone out or anything; nor am I going to shy away from competition. Im definitely going to compete every play, it doesnt matter whos guarding me.Two weeks ago, Jones posted one of the best games ever by an NFL receiver. He finished with 12 catches for exactly 300 yards in the win over Carolina, becoming the sixth player to have 300 or more yards receiving in a game. Jones averaged an astounding 25 yards per reception.But he was quieted last week against Denver. The Broncos werent going to let Jones have another huge game, putting double coverage on him for most of the game and holding him to two catches for 29 yards.The Seahawks are viewing that game against Denver as an anomaly.Hes been a great player for a long time, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. He came out as a great one. Hes just got marvelous talents, and hes really fast when he gets going down field, and hes a big playmaker and all that.Shermans shadowing of top wide receivers is also an acknowledgement of the versatility in Seattle secondary. DeShawn Shead and Jeremy Lane both have experience playing as nickel cornerbacks defending slot receives and playing on the outside. Their skills give Sherman the freedom to roam.It gets easier the more you do it. If you never dribble with your left hand and they ask you to dribble with your right, youre not going to be great at dribbling with your left hand. But if they ask you to dribble both, youll be adept at it, Sherman said. Its been something thats been fun for me. Whenever they ask me to do it, whenever the challenge presents itself or a team, its always their decision. Its not like I get to pick or choose which games I do it.Game notes Jones (knee) returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. Jones said the day off was precautionary. Im good to go, he said. ... The Falcons hope both starting LBs Deion Jones (ankle) and DeVondre Campbell (ankle) will be able to play.

Walsh, who kept his job after Minnesota brought in six free-agent kickers for workouts, fell to 15 of 19 on the season (79 percent) on extra points.Honestly, I didnt even see the kick, so I dont know what happened on it, other than he missed, Zimmer said.BLACK AND PURPLEThe Vikings lost left tackle Jake Long with a potentially season-ending Achilles tendon injury, linebacker Eric Kendricks with a hip injury and cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who was evaluated for a concussion.QUOTABLEBradford on the interception: Just didnt see him.Redskins linebacker Sua Cravens on Smith: I wont be able to talk to that man for three, next four days after the game he had.
