Seattle Seahawks

Lynch says it will be good to "get back to football" after the Seattle running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week.

He took questions for about 7 1/2 minutes Thursday morning, his longest such stretch this week. He talked for less than 7 minutes at both the media day and the media session at the team hotel.

Lynch ran 22 times for 109 yards and a TD in Sunday NFC title game.

It proved to be a nice day for Lynch, who totaled 40 of those yards on the TD run.

Lynch carried 28 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns and Seattle's defense flustered Drew Brees and New Orleans in a 23-15 victory Saturday in the NFC divisional playoff game.

Lynch now has 451 yards and five touchdowns on 87 carries in five career playoff games.

A $50,000 fine to Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch has been put on hold as long as he continues to comply with league policy on being available to the media. Lynch appealed the fine, but it was not overturned according to league spokesman Greg Aiello.

Instead, NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson put the fine on hold after Lynch committed to complying with league policy. If there are any further violations, the $50,000 fine will be collected and a minimum fine of $50,000 more will be assessed. Lynch had declined all requests for interviews this season and had not spoken to the media until last Friday when he talked for less than 90 seconds.

The NFL has fined Lynch $50,000 for violating the league's media policy.

Lynch stepped in front of a camera Friday and spoke for less than 90 seconds. It was his first time taking questions from the media all season, having politely declined every previous time. Lynch's longest answer was 24 words when asked about the Seahawks' focus this week not knowing who their opponent will be.

Lynch ran 20 times for 74 yards with a TD on Sunday at San Francisco.

He has four rushing TDs in three games.

Coming off consecutive games rushing for more than 100 yards, Lynch was held to 54 yards on 17 carries Sunday versus the Vikings. He did have two touchdown runs (4, 1).

Lynch wasn't great, but he wasn't needed much in Seattle's 41-20 victory.

Lynch rushed 24 times for a season-high 145 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

He's rushed for 270 yards on 45 carries in the last two games.

Lynch had a season-high 125 yards in a 27-24 overtime win against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Lynch is second in the league with 726 yards and his six touchdowns have him on pace to reach double digits for the third consecutive season.

Lynch didn't have much of a load in Monday's win over St. Louis.

Lynch carried only eight times - his fewest since 2011 - for just 23 yards.
