While everyone was expecting Peyton Manning to make retirement headlines following his victory at Super Bowl 50, it was Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch who stole the headlines.

“Beast Mode” took to twitter Sunday night where he simply tweeted a peace emoji and a picture of his cleats suspended from a telephone wire.

Although Lynch made no official statement on the matter, his agent and Seahawks owner Paul Allen acknowledged his departure from the game on Monday.

Lynch won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks 3 years ago when the squad demolished this year’s Super Bowl champion the Denver Broncos.

Lynch will go down in history as one of the toughest and most durable backs in NFL history.

During his nine-year NFL career, Lynch accumulated 9,112 yards rushing to go along with 74 touchdown scores.

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Minnesota Vikings by a final score of 10-9 on Sunday and will now travel to Carolina to battle the Panthers this weekend (Jan 17) in the NFL playoffs divisional round.

The Vikings carried a 9-0 lead in to the games fourth quarter on Sunday before Russell Wilson found Doug Balwdin for Seattle’s first score of the game.

On the next possession, Minnesota would hand the ball off to former NFL MVP Adrian Peterson who was stripped by Hawks safety Cam Chancellor, a fumble the Seattle defense recovered.

Seattle would post a field goal off of the “AP” turnover and took the lead 10-9.

The Vikings would get one last chance to have the ball on offense with two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

Second-year QB Teddy Bridgewater would lead the Vikings in to Seattle territory and set up his kicker Blair Walsh with what appeared to be a gimme 27-yard field goal.

Unfortunately for Vikings fans, Walsh pulled the kick left, breaking the hearts of all Vikings fans in the process.

After earning the thrilling victory over Minnesota, Seattle has now advanced to play the Carolina Panthers next Sunday in the divisional round.

The Seattle Seahawks (8-5) extended their current win streak to four games in a row by destroying the Ravens (4-9) by a final score of 35-6 yesterday afternoon in Baltimore.

Seattle’s defense appears to have returned to the form which saw them capture the Super Bowl just two years ago.

The Seahawks have given up a total of 13 points in their past two games against the Minnesota Vikings and aforementioned Baltimore Ravens, which has resulted in the squad becoming the NFL’s second-ranked overall defense.

Seattle’s star quarterback, Russell Wilson, threw five touchdown passes on Sunday afternoon, three of which went to wideout Doug Baldwin.

With their Week 14 victory over the Ravens, the Seahawks now find themselves in an NFC Wild Card spot.

The one piece of bad news for Seattle fans was that the team lost running back Thomas Rawls for the remainder of the season with a broken ankle.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll stated yesterday that there is still no timetable for the return of “Beastmode” aka Marshawn Lynch.

Seattle’s remaining three games will be played at home against the Cleveland Browns, St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals.
