Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch iced Sunday night’s win over the Cardinals with a career-long 79-yard touchdown run. He entered the end zone with a dive that included a crotch grab.
The maneuver was identical to the manner in which Lynch capped off the “Beastquake” touchdown run from the wild-card playoffs four years ago. When he did it the last time, no one noticed — so he was neither flagged nor fined.
This time around, it was noticed. (Even though it wasn’t flagged.) Lynch will now be in line for a fine.
Last year, Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan was fined $10,000 for making the same gesture.
