It seems like no matter what, when Richard Sherman plays the San Francisco 49ers controversy is not far behind the Seattle Seahawks Cornerback.

From Sherman's post-NFC Championship game rant aimed at 49ers Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree to the events of Thanksgiving 2014.

Today Sherman was back to his old best as his gloating once again got the best of him during the Seahawks 19-3 win at Levi's Stadium.

Sherman was seen throughout the match blowing kisses to the San Francisco crowd once the Seahawks had established a lead of course.

It didn't end there however as he was later seen waving from the sideline as every Seahawks first down was greeted with cheers from the star Cornerback.


In a performance that could be seen as Sherman displaying some taunting of the opposition, it wouldn't exactly be strange to see some sort of consequences for #25.

The taunting didn't stop when the game did however as Sherman was as confident as always in his post match interview.

"I was laughing. I told their sideline that if they threw it my way I would end the game." - Sherman on his second Interception of the night

Despite the big name Cornerback being on top form with his mouth against San Francisco, he was equally as impressive with his hands.

Sherman had two inceptions in the game and allowed for no completed passes to his side of the field.

But Sherman wasn't the only Seahawks on top of his game tonight.

Sherman wasn't the only star performer on defense for the Seahawks as fellow Cornerback Byron Maxwell had a night to remember.

The two were fantastic as the Seahawks defense only allowed 100 yard of passing offense to the 49ers.

Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson was also on fine form despite being sacked four times by the 49ers defense.

Throwing 236 yards in the game and the only touchdown of the entire match Wilson was also back to his rushing best running for 35 yards.

The Seahawks also got to San Francisco Quarterback Colin Kaepernick four times as they applied a lot of pressure to the California team.

The Seahawks came away with this crunch NFC West clash and now sit on 8-4 and are still behind the surging Arizona Cardinals on 9-2.

It doesn't get easier for the Seahawks however as they face a tough trip to the Philadelphia Eagles before hosting the 49ers and then a big clutch match against the Cardinals.

So the race for the NFC West title and a bye in the post-season is on the line as three of the NFL's biggest teams are preparing to duel for the honour in the West.
