Marshawn Lynch rushed for 110 and two touchdowns, Russell Wilson threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Seattle Seahawks started defense of their Super Bowl title with a 36-16 win over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
The Seahawks believe this will be a different game — much different — than the AFC Championship, played in Denver’s altitude and against the Patriots and their beat-up defense.
It’s easy to frame the Marshawn Lynch affair as the quiet athlete pummeled by the press, the self-righteous media wronged by an entitled player who should be honored to be there and to be coveted by the masses. But it’s hardly the case.
Marshawn Lynch says it will be good to “get back to football” after the Seattle running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week.
Lynch abruptly ended his media availability — again — walking away from a throng of reporters after about seven uncomfortable minutes in which he answered just a few questions.
With a day known for for it’s outlandish stunts, both by the media and the players, it was the small amount of answers by Lynch that made the headlines.
The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are all settled in for Super Bowl week. And on Tuesday they had to navigate the weird, weird waters of media day at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch made an early exit at Super Bowl media day, then returned to Tuesday’s session just in time to possibly avoid a hefty fine from the NFL.
The key for the Denver Broncos is keeping Russell Wilson contained in the pocket.
What does Seattle have to do in order to win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history?
Super Bowl XLVIII will feature the Denver Broncos and their top offense in the NFL against the Seattle Seahawks and their top defense in the NFL thanks to Seattle’s 23-17 win over San Francisco.
