Marshawn Lynch goes full 'Beast Mode' to give Seahawks lead in Philly

PHILADELPHIA -- Beast Mode has officially been reactivated.

Marshawn Lynch found the end zone for the second week in a row in the Seattle Seahawks' NFC wild-card game against the Philadelphia Eagles -- this time in vintage fashion. He scored from 5 yards out, reaching the end zone after an impressive second -- and third -- effort, with an assist from right guard D.J. Fluker. Lynch's touchdown helped the Seahawks take a 10-3 halftime lead over the Eagles.

It was Lynch's 10th career postseason rushing touchdown. He's the eighth player in NFL history with at least that many, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Rookie Travis Homer started for the second week in a row over Lynch, who came out of retirement after injuries decimated Seattle's backfield. Homer has 13 yards on seven first-half carries. Lynch has carried four times for 11 yards.
