Giants no match for Beast

Beast Mode was in full effect Sunday at CenturyLink Field as the Seahawks hosted the New York Giants. The Seahawks got back to the formula that has been so successful in the past, running the ball down the other team’s throats. The Hawks finished with a franchise record 350 total rushing yards, 140 of those belonged to Marshawn Lynch who also had 4 touchdowns on the day. The Giants actually had the lead at halftime, but the Hawks wore down the Giants defense on their way to a huge 4th quarter and a 38-17 win. It was a steady rain for most of the day and pretty heavy at times, especially when it was raining Skittles from the stands after a Lynch score.
