RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Marshawn Lynch is the horse that drives the Seattle Seahawks' offense.
Despite the emergence of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the offense revolves around the running game and the physical style of Lynch.
Lynch has the second-most carries of any running back in the league through 11 weeks, trailing only Houston's Arian Foster. Lynch has 212 carries for 1,005 yards, the fourth 1,000 yard season of his career, and trails only Foster and Minnesota's Adrian Peterson in the race for the rushing title.
Lynch has been listed on the injury report for all but two weeks this season with back and wrist injuries, but it hasn't hampered him on Sundays. Lynch runs as hard as any running back in the league, routinely earning extra yards, but he also takes more blows than just about any back in the league.
