Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch busts off his beast mode run three years ago and the team plays the New Orleans Saints again in the divisional round of the playoffs."

The Seattle Seahawks are playing against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday in the NFC divisional round playoffs and the game will be at CenturyLink Field and is a rematch from the postseason three years ago and in that game Marshawn Lynch went beast mode on his 67-yard touchdown run that is considered to be one of the best scoring runs ever and the two teams will be back at it again this afternoon on FOX.

Lynch and his amazing touchdown run helped seal the game for the Seahawks, who came in at 7-9 on the season to upset the Saints and it came in the fourth quarter with just over three minutes left and the play is so well known now that is has it's own Wikipedia entry on the website. The play came on a run called 17 Power and Lynch broke eight tackles on the play and also threw another player off of him during the course of the run.

Lynch starts the play by taking the ball up the middle and the Seahawks are up four at the time and breaks through the first set of players to get through the line and with two players grabbing onto him five years past the line, he breaks another tackle and gets to the first down marker. Lynch continues to shed tacklers and after breaking out of the secondary, he uses his great stiff arm that he has to shake off another defender. After that is the money shot, when Lynch slows down and pushes the player off of him to bounce out at the forty yard line and then Lynch continues along with his blockers ahead, makes a quick cut and then jumps into the endzone for the touchdown.
