Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch doesn’t appear to be in midseason form yet, but he did turn back the clock with a powerful run during Sunday’s game against the Ravens.
The Ravens are known for fielding a stout, physical defense, but Lynch welcomes contact, and his downhill running style puts a pounding on his opposition.
Lynch received a handoff on a first-and-goal situation from the three-yard line on Sunday, and he was not to be denied on the play. The Raiders running back was met by C.J. Mosley, and he then proceeded to run right over the Ravens linebacker, leaving him on the ground as he walked into the end zone.
Is Beast Mode back? That play shows that Lynch may be gaining steam.
