The Seattle Seahawks were able to bounce back improve to 5-1 after their loss last week, thanks to their win against the Tennessee Titans in Week 6. The Seahawks certainly did not play their best game, which makes the win that much sweeter. However, who was one player in particular that definitely deserves the Most Valuable Player Award for the victory?
Running back Marshawn Lynch came through for Seattle in a game many did not know if he would even be able to suit up for. There is no question his dominating performance proves just how lethal the Seahawks are and how good they can be as the season progresses.
“We didn’t even know if he was going to play today,” center Max Unger said, according to Seahawks.com. “But he played a helluva game. Marshawn is a tough dude, there’s no doubt about that. The more touches he gets I think he gets stronger. We kind of leaned on him a little toward the end and I thought he did a heckuva job.”
Lynch was the game’s leading rusher, receiver and scored the only two offensive touchdowns. His 77 rushing yards on 21 carries and four receptions for 78 receiving yards clearly propelled the team to victory. What is even more impressive than the overall statistics is the fact that 95 of his total yards were recorded in the fourth quarter when the Seahawks needed it most.
There is no question Lynch is a beast. In fact, he a huge reason why several teams in the NFC have to be worried about their chances of getting to the Super Bowl this season.
