Marshawn Lynch: Will Lynch Find Running Room Against the Bears' Defense?
Marshawn Lynch tore up the surprisingly soft Saints secondary last weekend, so how will he fare against the Chicago Bears?
The Bears hold the second best mark in the NFL in rushing yards allowed, giving up just 90 yards on average per contest. The Saints were nowhere near this mark when they entered their match-up in Seattle with the 7-9 Seahawks, but still stood to blowout the team no one expected to see in the playoffs.
However, the numbers just don't add up for the Seahawks' running game against the Bears rushing defense. This game will likely come down to a battle of quarterbacks. Amid health concerns, Seahawks' starter Matt Hasselbeck still threw for four touchdowns. It was the normally-stout secondary of the Saints that relinquished the game.
Now, the Seahawks and Marshawn Lynch will take their 89 yards per game on the ground (31st in the NFL) to Soldier field to face the Bears and their 90 yards per game on the ground average (2nd in the NFL). If Hasselbeck can defy the odds against the Saints defense, maybe Lynch can do the same to the Bears defense.
But not likely...
Logic will prevail in this one, and the Bears will end the Seahawks brief and unlikely run.
Prediction Score: Bears 34, Seahawks 20
