San Francisco 49ers
New Orleans Saints
This week, the NFL's two most impressive active streaks in will be at risk in Seattle, when the Seahawks host the Niners. Marshawn Lynch has scored at least one touchdown in each of his last 10 games; San Francisco's defense hasn't allowed a rushing score all season.
On Saturday, one of these streaks will probably (but not necessarily) come to an end. Sure, Lynch could find the end zone as a receiver, but he's only done it twice in his five-year career. He's been an absolute monster in short-yardage this season, as effective as any back in the league, and he's excelled in difficult match-ups. Check the totals against Baltimore, Dallas and Chicago.
As Niners corner Carlos Rogers recently said of Marshawn, "He's running like he just got out of jail."
But even that statement doesn't adequately describe Lynch's season, because there are guys in the league who literally did just get out of jail, and they aren't nearly this good.

Brandon Choate breaks down the week 15 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears in his Seahawks Monday morning quarterback. Tarvaris Jackson got it going in the second half while Marshawn Lynch AKA Beast Mode set some Seahawk records of his own. The defense played lights out, registering more points scored than the Bears offense.
Q weighs in with five reasons the Seattle Seahawks managed to keep their post season hopes alive with a 38-14 Sunday win over the Chicago Bears. Marshawn Lynch ran for a pair of touchdowns and Tarvaris Jackson threw for another. Plus Brandon Browner returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown and the Seahawks forced a total of five turnovers.

Dave B. is back and better than ever with his Week 16 NFL fantasy football forecast for the San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks matchup. Doug Baldwin has been Seattle’s most effective receiver this year and should continue to lead the team again. The last time Marshawn Lynch played the 49ers he had just 33 yards on 13 carries.
49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio saw this coming years ago. As a Baltimore Ravens assistant, he once warned his defensive coordinator Rex Ryan that running back Marshawn Lynch was one of the best backs in the league.
Another dominant performance by their defense has the San Francisco 49ers moving closer to securing a first-round bye in the playoffs.
The 49ers will try to avoid a third straight road loss Saturday when they face the Seattle Seahawks, who are looking to keep their faint playoff hopes alive.
Having clinched the NFC West for the first time since 2002, San Francisco (11-3) is trying...
