Raiders win in Marshawn Lynch’s NFL return


The Oakland Raiders battled the Tennessee Titans on the road and got a win in Marshawn Lynch’s return to the NFL.

Marshawn “Money” Lynch’s retirement was short lived. He signed with the Raiders this offseason after one year away from football and picked up right where he left off.

Lynch showed why he got the nickname Beast Mode as he wasted no time breaking tackles and running over defenders.

Lynch ran off any indications that he would be rusty in his first game of competitive play in almost two years.

Beast Mode ran for 76 yards on 18 attempts in his return to the league with an average of 4.2 yards per carry.

After an inspired first game back, the Oakland native will get a warm hyphy welcome at the Raiders’ first home game of the season Week 2 against the New York Jets.  

Quarterback Derek Carr also had a good return to football after suffering a season-ending leg injury just before the playoffs last year. In his return, Carr went 22-of-32 and threw for 262 yards and 2 touchdowns–one to Amari Cooper and one to Seth Roberts.

Next week Oakland’s boys will be back in town with a healthy Carr and a reinvigorated Lynch ready to put on for the city.
