Victorious Seahawks in 'beast mode,' Eagles in least mode
Seattle, WA – Running into a pile of players at the line of scrimmage, and with one defender's hands all over him, Marshawn Lynch somehow escaped.
Lynch's bruising 15-yard run in the opening quarter was only the first of four touchdowns scored by the Seattle Seahawks in a 31-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, but nothing was a better snapshot of the game and the team trying to tackle him.
Indeed, as Lynch shifted into "beast mode" at CenturyLink Field, the Eagles showed just how hard it's been for them to escape least mode.
Lynch ran for 148 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries and the Seahawks (5-7) intercepted Vince Young four times, converting three into touchdowns to win for the third time in four games.
Playing from behind all the way, and continuing to have trouble getting out of their own way, the Eagles (4-8) suffered their eighth loss for the first time in four years.
