Seahawks Mow Down Giants, 38-17

first_imgSEATTLE — While Doug Baldwin wants catches and wants to make plays in the passing game, he knows what the Seattle Seahawks have become known for: stingy defense, the improvisation of Russell Wilson and a lot of Marshawn Lynch.All three of those elements were at play in Seattle’s 38-17 victory over the New York Giants on Nov. 9, the third straight win for the Seahawks where the defending champs showed glimpses of that title form.“It felt like Seahawks football again,” Baldwin said.Lynch was the workhorse of a record day for the Seahawks offense. He ran for 140 yards and a career-high four touchdowns on runs of 1, 2, 3 and 16 yards. Seattle set a franchise record with 350 yards rushing, the most in the NFL since Kansas City ran for 352 against Indianapolis in 2012.Lynch wasn’t alone. Wilson added 107 yards on 14 carries and a 1-yard TD run with 5:19 left. Christine Michael and Robert Turbin averaged more than 5 yards per carry: Michael finished with 71 yards and Turbin added 32.Seattle is the first NFL team to have a running back rush for four touchdowns and a quarterback run for at least 100 yards in the same game.“I think it’s a little bit worse than embarrassing,” New York safety Antrel Rolle said. “I have been playing this game for 10 years and I’ve never had anyone run for 350 yards on me.”(TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img
