The Legion of Boom secondary of cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner and safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor will matchup against the two top quarterbacks on Jaworski’s list during the preseason – the Broncos’ Peyton Manning (No. 2) in their home opener on Aug. 17 and the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers (No. 1) to the following week (Aug. 23) in Green Bay.
During the regular season, the Seahawks are scheduled to face the Falcons’ Matt Ryan (No. 5) in Atlanta on Nov. 10; the Saints’ Drew Brees (No. 6) at CenturyLink Field on Dec. 2; the Texans’ Matt Schaub (No. 9) in Houston on Sept. 29; the Colts’ Andrew Luck (No. 10) in Indianapolis on Oct. 6; and the 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick (No. 11) twice – Sept. 15 at CenturyLink Field and Dec. 8 in San Francisco.
