Super Bowl Sunday was the best day of Marshawn Lynch’s life. Well, “next to being born,” the Seattle Seahawks running back said.
The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium, and Lynch scored Seattle’s first touchdown from 1 yard out with 12 minutes left in the second quarter.
“Kicked it all off, boss,” Lynch said about his touchdown run.
Lynch had 39 yards on 15 carries — a fairly pedestrian day for Beast Mode. Wide receiver Percy Harvin led the Seahawks in rushing with 45 yards on two end-around carries.
Lynch elected to speak to the media after the Seahawks’ win — he spent just 20 minutes with reporters during the entire Super Bowl week — and called the championship a “dream come true.” He was a man of few words yet again.
