Lynch devoured Eagles' eight-man fronts
By Mike Sando
Seattle Seahawks fans might want to check out the ESPN Stats & Information piece showing Marshawn Lynch's dominance against the Philadelphia Eagles' eight-man fronts.
Turns out Lynch gained 123 of his 148 yards rushing Thursday night against defenses with eight or more defenders in the box. The Eagles used these fronts on 17 of Lynch's 22 carries.
Another interesting note: The Seahawks picked off Vince Young three times on passes traveling at least 15 yards past the line of scrimmage. Young now has no touchdowns and eight interceptions on these longer throws.
