Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Jan. 29 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Marshawn Lynch, Rob Gronkowski Play Mortal Kombat With Conan O'Brien

UPDATE (1/30): Check out the full segment right here.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski got together for a game of *Mortal Kombat X *with late-night talk-show host Conan O'Brien. 

The trio don't actually get much done on the sticks, but their back-and-forth banter is worth a look in the video embedded above. 

Lynch and Gronkowski's on-screen appearance is a preview of a special Super Bowl episode of *Conan, *which is set to air a segment called "Clueless Gamer Big Game Showdown" tonight on TBS.

Marshawn Lynch Explains His Media Silence

Lynch made a statement to reporters on Thursday - the final day player press availability ahead of Super Bowl XLIX.

"I don't know what image you're trying to portray of me," Lynch opened in his 5 minute, 10 second session with the media. "But it doesn't matter what you all think, what you all say about me, because when I go home at night, the same people that I look in the face, my family that I love, that's all that really matters to me."

Luke Willson On The Mic
