Why this game is intriguing: You often hear quarterback battles described as one-on-one matchups, as in, "Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning." Can we call this the battle of the cornerbacks, despite all the negative vibes surrounding both units? On one side, you have the Seattle Seahawks' "Legion of Boom," led by ball-hawking, trash-talking Richard Sherman. He and partner Brandon Browner are playing while they appeal suspensions for violating the NFL's policy against performance-enhancing substances. On the other side, you have thieving cornerbacks Charles Tillman (nine total takeaways) and Tim Jennings, with Tillman reportedly battling a chipped bone in his foot. There are plenty of playoff implications, especially as Seattle tries to keep pace in the NFC, but the key Xs-and-Os battle will be between these defenses and the quarterbacks they're facing: the Bears' Jay Cutler and the Seahawks' Russell Wilson.
