Lynch finished with 18 carries for 76 yards, and had a 16-yard reception in the Raiders’ 26-16 victory over the Titans.
How did the Raiders react to Lynch’s game?
QB Derek Carr: “We got to see that Marshawn is Marshawn. He’s running through people, and he’s going to make it a pain on them to tackle him. You got to earn it if you’re going to tackle him.”
WR Amari Cooper: “He’s such a beast. You saw that play where he ran a guy over that was like five times bigger than he was, so it gets everybody hyped.”
RB DeAndre Washington: “We’ve been witnessing that since day one. We’re really not surprised. That’s what he does. That’s why we brought him in.”
OL David Sharpe: “He’s a physical player, he’s smash mouth, he’s going to run right through you. Third-and-short, fourth-down situations, when you’re trying to close a game out, that’s the type of player that you need, a guy that’s going to go north and south like that.”
CB David Amerson: “We already knew who he was coming in here. He came in and put on a show. I think at the end of the game in the fourth quarter when you need to get down the field, give it to ‘Beast Mode.’ That’s what he did – got us down the field.”
