Sherman and safety Earl Thomas, who sustained a shoulder injury during the game, both are expected to play in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Sherman was named a first-team AP All-Pro for the third season in a row after making 57 total tackles and intercepting four passes in the regular season.

In two playoff games this season, Sherman has two interceptions and three pass defenses.
