Surging Seahawks led by Lynch smash Eagles; 31-14

Marshawn Lynch powered through the Eagles for 148 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns, while David Hawthorne returned the third of Vince Young’s four interceptions 77 yards for a score, as the Seahawks cruised to a 31-14 win Thursday night over Philadelphia.

Lynch escaped a massive pileup for a 15-yard TD run in the first quarter, then made a quick jump cut and went the opposition direction of traffic en route to a 40-yard scoring stomp on the first play of the second quarter to give the Seahawks (5-7) a 14-0 lead.

Golden Tate’s 11-yard, remarkable touchdown snag along the back edge of the end zone in the third quarter pushed Seattle’s cushion to 17 over the Eagles (4-8).

But the Seahawks’ third triumph in their last four games wasn’t sealed until Hawthorne stepped in front of a swing pass intended for LeSean McCoy and raced untouched to paydirt with 4:24 left.

Beast Mode: For the fourth time in five games, Lynch topped 100 yards.  He had 90 yards by halftime on Thursday night, the most first-half yards rushing in his career. He averaged 6.7 yards per carry.

Next: Monday December 12 vs. St. Louis Rams, 5:30 PT.
