NFL: Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Beast Mode isn’t just a clever nickname. Marshawn Lynch earned that nickname. If you would like to see proof of that, look no further than this late run by Lynch in which he blew up 6-1, 305-pound Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey.

The run came with the Raiders knocking on the door in the final minutes. It went for 6 yards to set up Giorgio Tavecchio for his 43-yard game clinching field goal.

Jack Del Rio liked what he saw from his new running back and had a message after the game for anyone looking to defend Marshawn Lynch

"That’s grit. That’s perseverance,” Del Rio said of Marshawn’s running in the game. “A back like Marshawn who... you better be sure you want to tackle him before you go in there. He's gonna bring it. I think we saw some great examples of what we’re hoping to get from him. Happy for him and happy for us.”
