ATLANTA, GA. - Head-to-head matchups in the NFL don’t get more compelling than this.

Or likely more combative.

When the Atlanta Falcons (13-3, 0-0) play host to the Seattle Seahawks (11-5, 1-0) on Sunday in a divisional playoff game at the Georgia Dome, many are saying the best wide-receiver duo in the league is up against the best cover-cornerback duo in the league.

Namely, Atlanta’s Julio Jones and Roddy White against Seattle’s Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, the latter a former three-time all-star with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL.

We asked James Lofton, the Hall of Fame wide receiver, for his view on the hyped matchup.
