Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch hyping up for Saturday Divisional Playoff game
Lynch has contributed heavily to the Seahawks games so far and has been a major asset to them for as long as he has been a part of the team. Even so, the playoff game is of such magnitude that it has got everyone hyped and the excitement generated by is by far the greatest that he might have experienced.
“It’s good for everybody – for the team, the city,” Said Lynch in the locker room following the practice on Thursday. “So hopefully we can just keep it going.”
In case the Seahawks maintain the momentum they have this season and play the Saints game with the same energy they will be hosting the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The opponent will be decided by the Sunday game of Carolina Panthers versus the San Francisco 49ers. The winner winners of both the matches will play the NFC Championship Game.
The Seahawks and the Saints have already faced off in the Week 13 game in which the Seahawks emerged victorious. Although the Saints knew that Lynch would be a danger and the defence tried their best to contain him, he managed to overpower them and carried 16 times over 45 yards. He made an animalistic 67 yard touchdown and rushed for a total of 131 yards.
The Seahawks always appreciate the fact that they have Lynch on their side because he takes care of his game well and contributes to the win. When asked if he had added pressure to do his part, he simply said he did his part and everyone did theirs.
“Nah,” Lynch said. “We all are accountable for our job. I just do my job and everything else takes care of itself.”
