Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (24) explodes for a 76-yard touchdown run to give Seattle the advantage against a tough New England Patriots team.

August 21, 2020. Seattle,Washington. Football should have no politics. The Long Island Electric football league has its challenges in many ways. In 2016 during the early stages of our 7-game season format, the New England Patriots were one of the best teams that year. In fact they won the AFC championship and made it to LIEFL Super Bowl XII, losing to the battle-harned NFC Detroit Lions 42-17 in a Lion romp!  On paper it was a great match-up but once Detroit's Dexter Bussy got hot, it was over.

The Patriots have been steady in the East Division, but they haven't been able to get back to the a better performing team then what won them that AFC Championship in 2016. Coach Levi Vick said, "I am frustrated with this team, but I love the guys on the team.  Kevin Faulk was named All-Pro by the coaches, and I have made some changes since last week.  I just don't want to see them bow to Miami or Buffalo. We should be able to beat those teams, and we should play the Jets hard too.

Andrew Slawson of Slawson's Corner said, "With their backs against the wall the Patriots face a tough Seattle Seahawks team and the resurgence of the Seahawks offense with running back Marshawn Lynch, makes Seattle a fearsome team to be playing on the road. Don't forget, last week Seattle lost to Atlanta 17-14, but Lynch unleashed 118 yards rushing with two touchdowns! He also had an explosive 59 yard touchdown run in that game, so the Patriots have their hands full, and I don't think they will stop #24 today."

Coach Paddy Brannigan has his Seahawks ready! "Yeah baby! We want that jackpot at the end of the season and I think this team has a shot," said Brannigan. 
On the opening kickoff Seattle All-Pro running back Marshawn Lynch took the ball back 37-yards with some energy. Lynch had five consecutive runs of 10, 5, 12, 26, and finally a 10-yard touchdown putting the Seahawks ahead 7-0, with 5:16 left to go in the half!
In this game of Electric football we have to rise to the occasion when you taking on a tough team. The Patriots acted like Patriots and they came storming back with nine plays into the end-zone on a terrific catch by All-Pro utility Back, Kevin Faulk for a 30-yard touchdown to tie the game 7-7 with 7:45 left to go in the game!
Seattle was determined to stop the Patriots with a test of their own--stopping the elusive Lynch. After a 24-yard kick return and being stopped on first down, Lynch broke loose and went into "Beast-Mode" for an early season record 76-yard touchdown run into the end-zone on an absolutely spectacular breakout play for the Seahawks, making the score 14-7!
What a game! On the kickoff the Patriots refused to fade out and be intimidated by Brannigan and his Seahawks. Rob Gronkowski scorched through the center of the field for a  amazing hundred-yard return to tie the game at 14-14, with 3:22 left in the game!  
As time ran out on the Seattle Seahawks they were forced to kick a record 62-yard field goal to win the game 17-14 in a hard-fought intense battle! Marshawn Lynch had 139 yards and two-touchdowns on 8 carries along with 61 yards on kick returns, totaling 200 yards!  The "Gronk" had 137 yards on special teams for New England with a touchdown as the Pats go to (0-2) and they play the Raiders (0-1)at home.Coach Vick's Dallas Cowboys (0-2) will play Brannigan again next week at Seattle in a war next week! Lets see who plans better!
