Marshawn Lynch gave the Seattle Seahawks a much-needed boost in the third quarter, scoring his first touchdown for the franchise since the 2015 season.

From less than a yard out, Lynch scored by leaping over the goal line.

Lynch has been out of football all year and only signed with Seattle this past week. Recently, he was serving up shots for Oakland Raiders fans, rather than rushing in touchdowns.

This touchdown was so huge for Seattle. After falling into an early 13-0 hole, this score pulled them to within five points, 19-14. Not surprisingly, Seahawks fans threw Skittles onto the field in celebration.
