Examples of beating in a Sentence

  1. Richard Sherman:

    Adams, who caught two touchdowns and had a franchise playoff-record 160 yards in a win over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday in the NFC divisional round, now must face one of the top defenses in the NFL and one of the leagues best cornerbacks. Well, I mean, it doesnt change, really, Adams said on facing Richard Sherman. Hes definitely a great player, and people have said a lot about whether hes fell off or what not and I dont see that. I see that hes still the same guy, still making plays. Shermans 35 interceptions since entering the league in 2011 are the most among active players during that span. The 31-year-old is looking to make his third Super Bowl appearance after being one of the key parts to the Seahawks back-to-back Super Bowl appearances in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Though Shermans resume is longer than Adams, the respect between the two is mutual. Hes very good at beating man coverage.
