Tournament Of Touchdown Shots: Marshawn Lynch "Beast Mode" TD In Semifinals

Who would have thought that when Marshawn Lynch left Buffalo after four years, the last two of which he had a total of 614 yards in 17 games, that he would be one of the most exciting running backs to watch in his new home in Seattle with the Seahawks. In 2010, the Seahawks made the playoffs by winning the NFC West division with only a 7-9 record. They were set to host the heavily favored New Orleans Saints, led by Drew Brees, who went 11-5 in the regular season, during wildcard weekend.

Things didn't go as planned for the Saints and the vast majority of people who put money on the game. The Seahawks ended up defeating the Saints by a score of 41-36. The touchdown that ended up putting the Saints away was scored by non other than Lynch and it was scored in such a way that it keyed the term "beast mode."

Watch:

This single play is now in the semifinals of the NFL's Tournament Of Touchdown Shots, a tournament that pits the best NFL Film's shots against each other as voted by the fans. Lynch's touchdown is up against a shot of the fourth-down run by John "The Diesel" Riggens, who played for the Jets from 1971-1975 and for the Redskins from 1976-1979 and is a NFL Hall of Fame inductee.
