Even at this late stage in his career, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Richard Sherman continues to show that he still has plenty left in the tank.
Sherman earned the green light to feature in the Buccaneers' Week 14 home matchup with the Buffalo Bills after a stint on the injured reserve list due to a calf issue. He suffered no setbacks regarding his calf injury over the past week, and thus, the team opted to place him on the active roster ahead of Sunday.
It did not take long for Sherman to make an impact in the game, as he came away with a crucial interception off of Bills quarterback Josh Allen over the late stages of the first half.

This not only was Sherman’s first interception with the Buccaneers, but it was also the 37th of his career. He still leads all active players in interceptions, with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters (31) right behind him in this leaderboard.
Sherman has not had much to go his way so far with the Buccaneers this season, from his sluggish team debut showing against the New England Patriots to the nagging calf injury. If he can turn back the clock with vintage performances over the remainder of the campaign, it sure would provide the Buccaneers with a much-needed boost as they aim to make a late push for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
