SEATTLE -- Richard Sherman can't cover small receivers. At least that's the perception on social media about the Seattle Seahawks' All-Pro cornerback. And Sherman has taken notice.

"I don't guard small receivers well, so I don't know what I did 'cause that's not what I do well," Sherman said, tongue-in-cheek, after holding Steelers wideout Antonio Brown to 51 yards on six catches in a 39-30 Seahawks win Sunday. "That's my biggest weakness, so I don't know what I did. Just went out there."

With the spotlight on the matchup between Sherman and Brown -- all 5-foot-10 of him -- the Seahawks cornerback came away with one of his best games of the season. It is the fourth time this season Brown has been held to 51 yards or less without a touchdown.

It wasn't just Sherman's coverage of Brown that alleviated concerns.

Without any interceptions or forced fumbles entering Sunday, Sherman's ability to create turnovers had been questioned throughout the first 11 weeks of the season. He had eight interceptions in 2012 and '13 and finished last season with four as teams began to throw away from him.

Sherman changed that Sunday. He came away with an easy interception after Brown fell attempting a deep route early in the fourth quarter.

"I think he's the best at getting at balls, especially those deep balls," Seahawks safety Earl Thomas said.

Brown appeared to fall on his own, but there was some tussling before he hit the turf.

"(It) was what it was," Brown said of the no-call. "Obviously there was some grabbing, but they didn't call it, so the play happened."

While most teams match their best cornerback against an offense's top receiver, Sherman generally will stay on the left side of the defensive alignment. Sherman shadowed Brown for most of the game, though, something he also did against Dallas' Dez Bryant earlier this season. …
