Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 19 vs GB (12 / 26 / 2 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Lynch looked strong in the early going, but the Packers weren't giving up much, and even stopped him on 3rd-and-short, which stalled the Seahawks second drive. Lynch got most of the carries over Travis Homer, by a 12-3 margin. For the most part, Lynch tried to follow his blockers, and when breaking away was closed in on pretty quickly. After the one short yardage fail, he was basically unstoppable in those situations, converting both touchdowns from in close, and further adding a five yard run from the six, setting up his own score.

2019 Week 18 vs PHI (6 / 7 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)

Lynch didn't fare much better than Travis Homer, but he made a couple of plays that were difference makers in the game. First, the obvious, his touchdown. Lynch earned his "Beastmode" nickname on his 5-yard run, as he beat multiple defenders and, even though he was stopped momentarily, stayed on his feet and spun around for the final plunge across the goal line. And with that play, the Eagles had to respect the run for the rest of the day, which helped the passing game immensely. In the 3rd quarter, taking advantage of that attention, Lynch made a huge reception to convert a third down, going play action, then catching the ball as soon as he crossed scrimmage and rumbling for a twenty-yard gain. This set up DK Metcalf's touchdown just two plays later.

2019 Week 17 vs SF (12 / 34 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Lynch's overall numbers aren't very efficient, but, it didn't take him long to shake the rust off and command the attention of the defense. As for the result, it was hit and miss. Lynch did score an impressive TD, but was also stuffed on a crucial 4th-and-inches near the end of the first half. He had a couple of impressive runs in which the Beastmode of old was visible: a combination of speed burst, agility, power, and intuition behind his blockers. Early in the third quarter, he broke through the middle for a 15-yard gain, and for a moment it looked like he might actually break free for more. Lynch's most exciting play, however, was his short yardage TD in the final quarter, in which he made a dramatic leap over the line. He was perhaps robbed of a chance to win the game when, with the ball on the 1-yard line with time for perhaps one or two plays, the Seahawks were charged with a delay of game penalty, pushing them back to the six-yard line. Overall, he didn't quite get 50% of the carries, but close, and more importantly, he will continue to get the call on short yardage and we should expect him to get a slightly larger share as he continues to shake off the rust.


Latest News

Seahawks | Seattle's season ends despite late rally (Sun Jan 12, 10:11 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown as the team fell behind by 18 points twice but made a late charge before falling short 28-23 in Sunday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game. Wilson led the team in rushing with 64 yards, while RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 26 yards and two scores on 12 attempts. WR Tyler Lockett was highly efficient, turning his 10 targets into nine catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. WR DK Metcalf was held somewhat in check after setting a playoff record for most receiving yards by a rookie one week ago, finishing with four receptions for 59 yards. TE Jacob Hollister hauled in five catches for 47 yards. RB Travis Homer chipped in 27 more yards through the air to go along with his 13 rushing yards. CB Tre Flowers, LB K.J. Wright and DE Jadeveon Clowney paced Seattle with seven tackles apiece. LB Shaquem Griffin tallied one of Seattle's two sacks, while Wright and Clowney combined on the other.

Our View: Wilson was once again outstanding in a playoff loss. If the Seahawks had any kind of effective running game, they might have been okay in this one. Their defense has room to improve and the Seahawks will still be in the top of the NFC picture next year.

Seahawks | More work ahead for Marshawn Lynch? (Mon Jan 6, 12:53 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch logged only 18 snaps in the NFC Wild Card game, but head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN on Monday, Jan. 6, that he believes Lynch is ready to handle more of a workload now that he has two games under his belt.

Our View: Lynch has to be back in a groove after a couple of games since his return. Seattle may need to lean on him as they continue their postseason run. He'll at least continue as their primary back when they get near pay dirt.

Seahawks | Seattle advances to face Green Bay (Sun Jan 5, 07:44 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-30 passes for 325 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also led the team with 45 rushing yards. RB Marshawn Lynch rushed six times for just seven yards, but he had a touchdown and 25 receiving yards. WR DK Metcalf had seven grabs for a game-best 160 yards and a touchdown, while WR Tyler Lockett had four grabs for 62 yards. WR David Moore also chipped in with 57 yards on two grabs, while TE Jacob Hollister had two grabs for 16 yards on four targets. S Bradley McDougald had 11 total stops with a sack, two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit, while LB/DE Jadeveon Clowney also had five total stops, a sack, two tackles for loss and a quarterback hit.

Our View: The Seahawks are built for a deep postseason run and they got their first game out of the way. Playing on the road against the Packers is going to be much more difficult. Seattle didn't run the ball well against the Eagles and QB Russell Wilson was the team's leading rusher with 45 yards. They'll need to be better on the ground if they want to take down the Packers in the Divisional Round.
