Marshawn Lynch was always a character off the field, in a good way. However, at times, it overshadowed just how great he was on the field. Sure, everyone remembers the insane run against the New Orleans Saints where "Beast Mode" was born, but there were plenty of other memorable highlights that go far more unnoticed.
Back in a 2011 game against the Baltimore Ravens, Marshawn, while with the Seattle Seahawks, made one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history look pretty silly. After receiving a short pass on the outside, Lynch was staring down multiple Ravens defenders, including Ray Lewis.
With a quick juke, Lynch made Lewis' knees buckle and his ankles roll, leaving him helpless as he toppled to the ground.
It wasn't a monster gain like the Beast Mode play was, but anytime you're able to fool an NFL Hall of Famer that badly, it should be remembered for just how impressive that lone act is, no matter the result afterwards.
