Marshawn Lynch joins exclusive list

RENTON, Wash. – Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has joined an exclusive list of only seven players in NFL history who have rushed for more 100 yards in five or more playoff games.

Here's that list with the number 100-yard playoff games and the number of playoff games in their career:

Terrell Davis – 7 of 8

Emmitt Smith – 7 of 17

John Riggins – 6 of 9

Thurman Thomas – 6 of 21

Marshawn Lynch – 5 of 9

Marcus Allen – 5 of 16

Franco Harris _ 5 of 19

Lynch is averaging 94.3 yards rushing over the last seven games, including three games with more than 100 yards and 157 yards in the NFC Championship on Sunday against Green Bay.

Lynch had 120 yards after halftime Sunday, including a 24-yard TD in the fourth quarter. He also had a 26-yard reception that almost was a TD, but he barely stepped out of bounds at the 9.

“He was just alive and ripping,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Lynch. “He had a great game. It’s been an extraordinary season that he’s put out here, because he’s been so consistent for so long and he’s been so physically right for so long.

“He looked explosive again. He looked fast. His attitude is always there. He was able to take advantage of space, and sometimes no space. He just would not go down. He played fantastic again.”

Lynch also leads the NFL in 100-yard games over the last four seasons with 24, one more than Arian Foster of Houston. Lynch also has the most TDs since 2011 with 56.
