Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs SD (6 / 36 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 27 / 1 rec)

Lynch had a quiet start, with only three carries in the first half. Even though they were playing from behind, The Seahawks really tried to involve him in the short passing game. This eventually paid off well. At one point, the Chargers left Lynch uncovered and Wilson took full advantage, but the play was called back on a penalty. Next time this happened, they made no mistake and Lynch easily ran it in for a 14 yard TD. Overall, Lynch ran well, just not very often. The lack of touches were purely due to that game situation based on what we knew at the time, but the team has revealed that Lynch also had his back flare up during the game.

2014 Week 3 vs DEN (26 / 88 / 1 rush, 5 / 3 / 40 / 1 rec)

Beastmode was a workhorse in this game - in part due to the lack of work he got last game (six carries). Lynch ran hard the whole game and was given the ball at basically every critical moment. Early on, he had three tries from inside the 10-yard line, but was eventually stuffed at the 1. The Broncos defense was formidable and did not make it easy for him, but Lynch had the last laugh. As usual, he displayed great reads and cuts to find first down yardage even in crowded spaces. He displayed a lot of power. On one play it looked like he was stopped for no gain but dragged everyone forward for a nine yard gain. His longest run was 12 yards, but he made a big impact on a couple of receiving plays as well, notably on a swing pass that he took for a quick 21 yards. It really appears that the Seahawks are trying to get the ball in his hands more as a receiver this year - or maybe he's just doing more with the opportunities. At any rate, to the naked eye, he looks to have added more to his game in that area, showing great instincts all around: he has been getting open consistently, shown soft hands, and runs for plenty of yards after the catch. On his touchdown catch, Lynch actually lined up wide (inside) and ran a quick slant pattern, which he caught in stride and took into the end zone. Late in the game he was tackled for a safety but there was nothing he could have done about it, he was just smothered. In OT, it took great vision to zig zag up the middle and bounce off a defender at the goal line, for the winning score. Of note: the back injury he was nursing must be under control, based on the workload he handled.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to be unleashed? (Fri Sep 19, 06:16 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could be used often in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos after running only six times in a loss to the San Diego Chargers in Week 2. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell wouldn't specify how much they'll use Lynch, but the Seahawks would be happy to give Lynch 20 touches.

Our View: Lynch was one of the few Seahawks players who did not have a huge day in the Super Bowl. He'll get a chance to make another beastquake in the rematch.
