While the Seahawks appear well on their way to earning the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the running game has statistically been a little below its usual pace of late. Tailback Marshawn Lynch has just 218 yards in the past four games, averaging 3 yards per carry. With two games left, Lynch has 1,089 yards and is averaging 4.2 yards per carry compared to 1,590 yards and a 5.0 average in 2012.

Statistics from Pro Football Focus, though, indicate Lynch still is running well. Lynch had 47 yards on 16 carries against the Giants Sunday, and PFF determined that 30 of Lynch’s yards came after contact. Lynch also had six receptions in the game for 73 yards, getting 64 yards after contact.
