Cliff Avril Sack/Forced Fumble Sets Up Marshawn Lynch Touchdown

A sack and forced fumble by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril helped set up a 3-yard touchdown run by running back Marshawn Lynch.

One big play led to another for the Seahawks in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Defensive end Cliff Avril sacked and forced a fumble of Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, a ball that was recovered by linebacker K.J. Wright at Arizona's 3-yard-line. It was there where the Seattle offense took over, and on one play put up six points on a tough run from Marshawn Lynch.

It was Avril's 22nd sack/forced fumble since 2008, a number that's tied for most in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs' Tamba Hali and Indianapolis Colts' Robert Mathis. Lynch's score brought the Seahawks within two points of the Cardinals, 25-23.
