Seahawks offense, Marshawn Lynch thriving during playoff push

With just two weeks left in the regular season, the Seahawks and their offense are clicking on all cylinders.

The Seattle Seahawks appear to be peaking at the right time. With the playoffs just a couple of weeks away, the team is firing on all cylinders, especially on offense.

As this tweet from SB Nation noted, Seattle has put up 108 points in the last two weeks. Granted, it was against the Cardinals and Bills, two teams with losing records that were both out of the playoff race at the time, but 108 points in two weeks is a lot. It took the Seahawks six weeks to eclipse the 108-point mark this season.

The driving force behind all of these points? Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and veteran tailback Marshawn Lynch. In the past two weeks, Lynch has 241 yards on his last 21 carries. His efforts late in the year have him in the running for a Pro Bowl nomination, and Seattle fans can only hope this kind of production continues in the coming weeks.

Wilson, Lynch and the rest of their teammates will face a true challenge in Week 16 as they welcome the San Francisco 49ers to town.
