Florham Park, NJ - Last week the offense had to face one of the best hound cornerbacks in the league in Marcus Peters, Peters had two picks and of course Ryan Fitzpatrick threw in four more on the day. This week the Jets will square off against another top cornerback, this one a bit more established and much more of a household name, Richard Sherman.
Sherman became a household name because of his mouth, not that his play wasn't already deserving but he played in Seattle and let's be honest it's hard to get noticed in Seattle. Then Sherman started taunting quarterbacks, most memorably when he hit Tom Brady with the "you mad bro?", and of course his famous taunting of Michael Crabtree after the Seahawks clinched a trip to the Super Bowl. While his antics made him known to the entire NFL world, his ability to backup those antics with strong play on the field has kept him as a household name.
After having the best game of his career against the Bills two weeks ago, followed by the worst game of his career last week against the Chiefs Ryan Fitzpatrick now finds himself in the unenviable position of having to face Sherman and the Seahawks defense as he attempts to rebound from such a dreadful performance.
In the video above Brandon Marshall talks about Sherman and what makes him such a special player.
