Seahawks Run Wild in Beating Giants
SEATTLE (AP) — Marshawn Lynch rushed for a season-high 140 yards and career-best four touchdowns and the Seattle Seahawks overcame their own sloppiness for a key 38-17 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.
Russell Wilson threw two interceptions, the Seahawks committed three total turnovers, and Eli Manning picked apart Seattle's secondary for the first half. It all didn't matter because of Lynch leading Seattle's unstoppable run game.
The 350 total yards rushing by Seattle (6-3) were a franchise record and the most in the NFL this season. It was the most yards rushing by any NFL team since Cleveland had 351 vs. Kansas City in 2009.
Lynch carried 21 times, but there was plenty of running to go around. Wilson added 107 yards on 14 carries and a 1-yard TD run with 5:19 left. Most of Wilson's runs were designed as New York (3-6) failed to keep contain.
