Top 5 Storylines Entering Super Bowl XLIX

3. Sherman playing at less than 100 percent

Seattle’s standout cornerback, Richard Sherman, is the face of the Legion of Boom. But there is serious doubt the All-Pro corner will be at 100 percent come kickoff Sunday night.

Sherman is dealing with torn ligaments in his elbow, but has continued to practice in full leading up to the game. Sherman stated this week that he’s improving daily and finished with his treatment. Yet the Patriots seem fully aware Sherman is at not at 100 percent.

Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner, Sherman’s former teammate in Seattle, told ESPN he’s advising the Pats wideouts to go after Sherman’s elbow. He went as far as to tell them to break it.

Well, this matchup is sure to grab the cameramen’s attention.
