Could a game in September portend things to come six months later? At exactly 3:00pm, running back Marshawn Lynch walked through the narrow hallway leading from the garage at CenturyLInk Field to the locker room for a Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks defeated the 49ers, 29-3, then beat them again in January in the NFC Championship game and earned a berth in Super Bowl 48.
