News you need to know
General News (Fri Nov 21): practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this week.
General News (Tue Nov 18): sat on the bench while his team headed to the locker room during halftime of their Week 11 game with the Kansas City Chiefs, causing even more rumors regarding the tenuous relationship with head coach Pete Carroll and the team. This might be the final year that Lynch is with the Seahawks. Yes, he's been incredibly productive during his time in Seattle. Yes, the team is not as good without him. However, Carroll confirmed that Lynch stayed on the bench due to fatigue and said their relationship is still a work in progress. Carroll admitted that Lynch is a private person but has done a great job on the field.
Week 12: vs Arizona Cardinals
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Marshawn Lynch moved the ball well at Kansas City, with 24/124/0 on the ground and 1/1/0 receiving last weekend, but like the other running backs before him Lynch didn't find pay dirt against the Chiefs (who haven't allowed a rushing TD yet this year). Two games ago Lynch dominated the Giants with 21/140/4 rushing and 1/23/0 receiving as Seattle piled up 45/350/5 during the contest (Russell Wilson also went over 100 yards rushing that day, with 14/107/1, and he pitched in 8/71/0 at K.C. last week, too). The Seahawks' rushing attack is as powerful as ever entering Week 12. The Cardinals' rush D is ranked third in the NFL averaging 80.5 yards allowed per game, with five rushing scores given out to date. They limited Detroit to 19/98/0 on the ground last week, and held the Rams to 22/70/1 two games ago - this defensive front is one of the best units in the NFL at rush D. Advantage, Arizona.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 9 vs OAK (21 / 67 / 2 rush, 5 / 5 / 76 / 0 rec)
Lynch finally had the right circumstances to shine this season. First, a porous defense to run through - or so it seemed. Second, a lead for most of the game. And third, opportunities in the passing game. His first touchdown, a 3-yarder, was vintage Lynch as he stayed on his feet even when stopped; but before the whistle blew, he and his lineman were able to create momentum and get into the end zone. It looked a lot like a rugby scrum. The Seahawks leaned on him pretty heavily early on, and he didn't disappoint, also making a catch for a first down. He did share the load somewhat with Turbin and Michael (21-5-4) but Lynch got the important carries, which included another goal line TD, in which he had a huge hole to run through. He could have gained more on the ground, had a couple of longer runs not been called back on penalties. Later in the game, he did have a big play, showing patient and deceptive running on a screen play that makes defenders miss enough for a 39 yard gain and got the Seahawks inside the 10.
2014 Week 10 vs NYG (21 / 140 / 4 rush, 1 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec)
Lynch had a monster game from start to finish. His Three of his four TDs were in short yardage situations, but all were hard-earned. The offensive line consistently gave him big holes to run through, and from there he broke tackles used his stellar vision to add a few more yards on most carries. If there was a downside to his game, it was that he got stopped a few times at the goal line as well. On one TD, he was actually stuffed on 1st and 2nd down, before finding daylight on the third try. His final score was a 16 yarder up the middle. The four TD's were a treat, but he dominated all over the field.
2014 Week 11 vs KC (24 / 124 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
On the first real drive of the game (after a three-and-out to start), Lynch had four consecutive carries for 35 yards before taking a quick breather. He looked great up the middle, powering through, and also managed to get outside for a big run. Lynch ran wild in general, but when it counted, at the goal line and on a 4th & 1 late in the match, was stopped twice by a very tough defense. He left the game briefly in the first half with an apparent injury, but returned and showed no signs of being slowed down by it.
