Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said that Green Bay wanted no part of “Beast Mode” and hesitated when it came to trying to bring him down.
"Obviously we were the more physical team today offensively and defensively," Bennett said, according to NFL.com. "I saw supposedly some of the best players in the league not want to tackle Marshawn Lynch.”
The Seahawks rushed for 207 yards in the game, averaging five yards per carry.
"Of course, nobody's going to say nothing about that, but I saw a lot of guys whiff on tackles that should have been two-yard gains, and they're supposed to be the best. We had to prove that we're the best defense,” Bennett said.
Seattle’s next game is on the road against the San Diego Chargers on Sept. 14. Green Bay plays the New York Jets at home on the same day.
