In a rare turn of fate, Beast Mode scores untouched.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch used stiff arms, broken tackles, and tough "Beast Mode-style" running to break off a career-long 77-yard touchdown run on Sunday to give Seattle a 10-7 lead over the Lions. No, wait, he didn't have to use any of that.
Detroit just parted the sea as Lynch gave the Seahawks their longest play of the season. It was the longest run for Seattle since an 88-yard Shaun Alexander run in 2005.
After Ryan Broyles scored at the end of the first quarter for Detroit, Seattle found something they've been looking for all year: Offense. Lynch's previous career-long of 56 yards came in his rookie season with the Bills, back in 2007. He's become known for his "Beast Mode" running attack that can turn a 2-yard loss into a 3-yard gain, but in this case he just turned a 77-yard gain into a 77-yard gain.
Coming up next in the game: Russell Wilson turns into an elite pocket passer. (No. Probably not.)
