Someone has finally stopped Marshawn Lynch and his electrifying 67-yard touchdown run that iced the Seahawks’ upset of the defending Super Bowl champion Saints in their 2010 wildcard playoff game.
It’s Steve Young, the Hall of Fame quarterback for the 49ers.
Young collected 10,073,391 votes in his semifinal matchup against Lynch to advance to the championship round of NFL.com’s Bracketology competition to determine the greatest play in NFL history. Lynch got 1,915,562 votes.
Young’s touchdown run on Oct. 30, 1988, now goes against a walk-off punt return by the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson on Dec. 19, 2010. You can cast your vote here for the title matchup through Tuesday.
