Marshawn Lynch touchdown puts Seattle Seahawks up vs. St. Louis Rams early

Marshawn Lynch is the Seattle Seahawks offense. The Seahawks are up 7-3 on the St. Louis Rams Sunday, less than halfway through Week 4. Therefore: Marshawn Lynch has scored a touchdown. He's got seven carries (to Russell Wilson's eight throws) for 35 yards and the touchdown, putting himself on pace for his usual fantasy football game of 50 carries, 85 yards, and two touchdowns.

Wilson's actually having a nice game, 7-for-8 with 78 yards so far, which means the Seahawks could open their offense up if they want to. But the Rams' secondary and pass rush is much better regarded than their run defense, and the Seahawks clearly want to see whether Marshawn Lynch knows who Larry Johnson is, so it probably won't happen.

Meanwhile: Steven Jackson has six carries for 33 yards for the Rams, though 23 of those came on one carry.
