Where'd he go? Eagles never did find Lynch
By Mike Sando
SEATTLE -- Beast Mode apparently comes with its own low-range four-wheel drive.
Even after watching replays, it was tough to fathom how the Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch broke free from what seemed like an impossible predicament on his way to a 15-yard touchdown run.
Lynch disappeared into a sea of super-sized NFL bodies. Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Jamar Chaney and and defensive end Trent Cole had shots at him, but Lynch, momentarily lost in the crowd, found a hidden exit and escaped.
This run moves to No. 2 on the list of memorable ones from Lynch. Those unsure which one ranks first missed the Seahawks' upset victory over New Orleans in the playoffs last season. That one might be impossible to beat. This one was pretty special, too.
