In one play, Marshawn Lynch justified Seattle’s mid-season trade with Buffalo. The former Cal running back went beast mode at the best possible time, late in the game when the Saints were coming on and looking to defeat the Seahawks. Check out the Marshawn Lynch touchdown run against the Saints that will go down as one of the best playoff runs all-time:
By my count, Lynch broke nine tackles on that run, and there were five times I thought for sure he’d be tackled. Never happened. I guess the play signified that Seattle was destined to win that game. The only good news about a 7-9 team winning a home game in the playoffs is that the NFL may finally change the bad rule. What a freaking play.
