If there were any doubts over Marshawn Lynch’s power running abilities, he comfortably put them to bed against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Since his comeback, the five-time Pro Bowler has rushed for just 41 yards on 18 carries in the two games he has suited up in. His most recent showing for the Seattle Seahawks saw Marshawn Lynch will his way through the Eagles to register the first touchdown of the game.
