Marshawn Lynch is having himself a game on Saturday. In the first half alone, Lynch had 69 rushing yards on 15 attempts and the lone touchdown in the Seahawks-Saints game (Seattle led 16-0 at halftime). 

And on that touchdown, a beautiful 15-yard run, Lynch got pelted with Skittles by Seahawks fans. 

Lynch's love of Skittles is pretty widely known at this point. He first sampled them on the sideline, at least seen by cameras, in December of 2011. Lynch later rocked Skittles cleats. And, of course, there's the "Beast Mode" burger the Seahawks are selling Saturday, featuring a side order of Skittles.

Of course, even though he may love the Skittles, maybe Seahawks fans should reconsider pelting him in the face with tiny pieces of candy.
