His final season with the Raiders was cut short after just five weeks due to a groin injury, which was not thought to be that serious at the time. When Lynch went down, he was tied for fifth in the AFC with 331 rushing yards. The groin injury occurred against his former team, the Seattle Seahawks, in a game that took place in London.
Over six games in 2018, Lynch averaged 4.2 yards per carry and had three touchdowns, far less than his "Beast Mode" days in Seattle. Over his two seasons with the Raiders, he played in 21 games and had 1,267 yards on 297 carries after getting acquired from Seattle in April of 2017. He is a former five-time Pro Bowl running back, and a 2012 first-team All-Pro, which is when he ran for 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Seahawks. He surpassed 100 yards 34 times in his career, including once this past season, and ran for at least 1,200 yards in four straight seasons from 2011 to 2014. In 11 NFL seasons, he ranks fourth among active players with 10,379 rushing yards, and fifth with 93 touchdowns and 12,593 total yards.
