Eagles coach Chip Kelly, in his postgame press conference, called Sherman's the league's best corner and noted he has 23 interceptions since 2011 -- eight more than anyone else.
For the season, Sherman has 45 tackles, three picks and a forced fumble. He'll face the 49ers again in Week 15.
The Seahawks were relentless against the 49ers offense on Thanksgiving, holding the opposition to only 164 total yards on offense and just 3.2 yards per play. Sherman's first interception came on a misfired 20-yard pass from San Francisco's 30-yard line that made it appear the Seattle cornerback was the intended target. His second pick came on one of San Francisco's few trips into Seattle territory as Colin Kaepernick appeared to lose the cornerback in coverage and threw another pass directly to the defender.
The Seahawks defense managed a total of four sacks and three turnovers in the win. They'll look to keep rolling in Week 14 against the Eagles.
"He's been very clear in that intent for a long time around here," Carroll said. "It's always been a conversation that we've had, and if I need him I'm going to him and he knows that."
Sherman was Stanford's leading receiver as a freshman and a sophomore before transitioning into a corner. He came down with 73 receptions for 1,232 yards seven touchdowns in those two seasons at Stanford.
The Seahawks traded away Percy Harvin, one of their only playmakers at wide receiver. The team is currently ranked 30th in the league with 191.8 yards per contest, having failed to surpass the 200-yard mark in each of the previous four games.
