Something about the playoffs brings out the best in Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

On 3rd-and-1 in the third quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Lynch ran through the San Francisco 49ers defense for a 40-yard touchdown to make it a 10-10 game.

Beast Mode strikes again.

Even the Seattle Police Department had to tweet out a warning:

Caution: Receiving reports that a Beast has broken loose on @CenturyLink_Fld #gohawks

Of course, Seahawks fans were ready to bust out the Skittles:

Seahawks receiver Golden Tate tried to eat some of the candy:

Skittles chimed in on Lynch's touchdown run:

The only thing that would make that touchdown more awesome is if I got in my time machine to watch it again.
