Watch: Marshawn Lynch had his Skittles before kickoff

Sunday February 1st, 2015

As widely expected, Marshawn Lynch chowed down on some Skittles before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLIX.

Skittles got the Seahawks running back to break his media silence during Super Bowl media week with a "press conference," and Lynch's pregame snack only strengthens his connection to the candy.

The Patriots received the opening kickoff, giving Lynch a little more time to enjoy those Skittles.
