Panthers ready for challenge of facing Seahawks' Richard Sherman
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he won't be afraid to throw against Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in Week 8. However, he knows he has to be careful when he challenges one of the league's best cornerbacks.

"If the play is called for me to read it to Richard’s side, by all means I’m going to do it," Newton said, per ESPN. "And I’m going to give each and every receiver an opportunity to make plays.  I’m not going to force it. I’m not going to be an idiot. I’m going to do a great job of protecting the football and be aggressively patient in taking what the defense gives me."

Sherman will likely draw rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin for most of the afternoon Sunday. Benjamin is ready for the challenge.

"You can tell he loves the game," Benjamin said. "He brings the passion to it. He has fun. He talks a lot of smack out there, but this is football. I’m just going to come out there and match his intensity; play fast and be sound in all my assignments."

Cowboys will not be afraid to test Seahawks CB Richard Sherman
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dallas will not be afraid to test Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman during its Week 6 matchup with Seattle, especially when Sherman is covering star wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Opposing teams have completed just 7 of 15 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown against Sherman in 2014.

"If you go into that game with these guys, you wouldn’t really snap the ball," Garrett said of shying away from Sherman, per ESPN. "They have good players outside, they have good linebackers, they have good rushers, the free safety is fantastic. We have to go play. We have a healthy respect for their team -- all you have to do is put in the tape -- but we have to do what we do."

Richard Sherman 'still the raggedy dog'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said his $57 million contract extension won't change the way he approaches the game. He still has a chip on his shoulder from being drafted in the fifth round, after 23 other defensive backs, reports The News Tribune.

"I’m still the guy scrapping for a spot," Sherman said. "You never lose that mentality. You can take a ragged dog that’s been on the streets for 10 years and put him in a new house with steak, lobster every night and he’s still the raggedy dog you got off the street.

"I’m still the raggedy dog off the street. That mentality isn’t something I could change, I don’t think, even if I wanted to. Even if wanted to be, ‘Yeah, I’m a millionaire.’ I can’t do it. It’s not a switch that I have. I’ve been in this mentality. I don’t know anything else. This is how I’m going to be until I hang the cleats up. Then, I might try to eat caviar and drink wine, or whatever they do."
