Oakland’s own Marshawn Lynch lights Al Davis torch in Raiders possible final game in the town

NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Marshawn Lynch will not be taking the field in what could be the Raiders final game in Oakland. But he will still be a part of the day. The Oakland native will light the Al Davis ‘flame that burns brightest’ torch before the game.

Beastmode has been on injured reserve since week seven with a groin injury. The 32-year-old back is in the second year of a two-year deal with the team, so it’s possible this could be his final act as a member of his beloved hometown Raiders. It’s a nice gesture. Both for him and the Oakland faithful who showed up in the pouring rain to come out and support their Silver & Black on prime time.

I think I can speak for most of us when I say hopefully this will not be the last game in Oakland for the Raiders or Marshawn Lynch.
