Marshawn Lynch has been running into brick walls all day.

He finally broke through one, however.

The Seahawks running back just tied the NFC Championship Game 10-10, with a 40-yard touchdown run.

Lynch had managed 49 yards on 14 carries prior to that, as the 49ers had stifled him throughout the game.

Most of the offense in this game has come on broken plays, but Lynch’s run looks like kind of cumulative, the result of sticking with something, hoping it will eventually work.
