Seahawks feed Lynch, grind up Falcons for 33-10 rout

So tension-free were the last few minutes, Marshawn Lynch stood on the sideline with his shoes off, jersey pulled up and helmet on top of a water cooler.

The damage done while Lynch was sealed into his highlighter green cleats was the main reason he was at peace well before the game was over.

Seattle’s most complete win since a Week 2 dismantling of the San Francisco 49ers came in Atlanta on Sunday. Lynch ran for a season-high 145 yards in the 33-10 bludgeoning of the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome.

“I thought we played a complete football game with great intensity throughout,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.

Lynch seemed to shove aside tacklers the way the Seahawks pushed away the inconsistency of the past few weeks.

“We’ve been frustrated by it,” Carroll said. “We have not been pleased with the way the games have gone. We haven’t been able to start and finish a game the way we have been capable. I thought today, we did.”

That started with football purity. The Seahawks continue to cling to a run-first approach in the wide-open aerial world of the NFL.

The Seahawks ran the ball 42 times. That was their second-most carries this season trailing the 47 against San Francisco in Week 2. Those two weeks also have the highest carry totals for Lynch this season, 28 against the 49ers and 24 Sunday.

Lynch continues to progress with force. Several times, especially early against the Falcons, Lynch turned poor blocking into positive gains. He bullied with stiff-arms and dragged defenders with churning legs.
