Destruction Follows Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch, Stats Unaffected Seattle Sports Central
Seahawks Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch not only punishes defenders that try to tackle the powerful runner, but also tends to leave a trail of destruction of those that often find the task to be too difficult.
Lynch’s role with the Seahawks was in question at the start of the season when it was rumored that the defending Super Bowl champions would be moving to a running back by committee. So far, that hasn’t been the case with Lynch carrying the ball on nearly 60% of running plays.
His stats haven’t taken a hit either. With 234 rushing yards, Marshawn Lynch is ranked 6th in the NFL among all running backs. He’s averaging 4.5 yards per carry and his three rushing TD’s are tied for best in the league.
The Seahawks are currently on their Bye Week and will be traveling to face the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football on October 6th.
