5. Richard Sherman will be inspired to perform for his newborn son
Whether the Seahawks cornerback’s son will be born on Sunday or not is still a mystery, but he is facing a potential dilemma that will force him to choose between playing in the Super Bowl or seeing the baby’s birth. If anyone knows Sherman well though, they will know that he is extremely passionate about the game. Although he may be known as a loudmouth to most NFL fans, there’s no denying Sherman’s heart, which clearly rubs off on his teammates. Besides, there’s no way that Sherman will pass on an opportunity to one-up Brady once again after the famous 2012 matchup that featured a “U mad bro?” meme.
