Richard Sherman has revealed that he is looking to match the NFL record for most interceptions in a single season.

The Seattle Seahawks cornerback took the second highest number of interceptions in the league last season with eight and is now looking at Dick Lane's 1952 total of 14.

The 25-year-old told Fox Sports: "I'm gonna go for 14. That's the record. It's just having lofty goals and having an ignorance to think you can do anything, be anywhere. I never had anybody to tell me I couldn't have 10 touchdowns and five picks, so I didn't see why I couldn't do it.

"It might seem far-fetched to other people and it'll seem crazy until it starts to manifest itself and then they'll be like, 'Oh, now I see it. He really can do it'. You keep going, you keep setting even loftier goals. If I could do what I did, I could go deep as an MVP, we can win the Super Bowl.

"Then once you achieve that, set it again. As long as I never become complacent, that's my big thing. I don't want to feel the ceiling. I want to feel like the sky is the ceiling. Shoot, if there's footprints on the moon, why say the sky is the limit?"

The Seahawks begin their season against the Carolina Panthers later today.
