Seattle's big CBs face challenge in Atlanta's WRs

Posted: Updated:
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -

Taken individually, Roddy White and Julio Jones rank among the NFL's elite at wide receiver.

As a tandem, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman doesn't know if there is a better duo.

Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game between Seattle and Atlanta will feature a fascinating matchup between Sherman and fellow Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner and the Falcons' receiving duo of White and Jones.

It's the big, physical cornerbacks of the Seahawks, who because of their skills allow Seattle's defense to be unique, against the big, physical and fast receivers who make the Falcons' offense go.

Whoever wins the matchups won't likely be the most important element in Sunday's game. But it could be the most entertaining.
