Madden social media team takes dig at Seahawks

It wasn't enough for the Seattle Seahawks' social media team that Marshawn Lynch was given the highest rating of any running back in the upcoming Madden 2016 video game.

The Seahawks' Twitter account wondered aloud how Beast Mode wasn't given a 99-overall rating in the trucking category. It didn't take long for the official EA Sports Madden account to take a jab at how they failed to utilize their star running back's skills on the final goal line play of Super Bowl XLIX.

Lynch is rated a 96-overall, ahead of Adrian Peterson and the rest of the league's top runners. Madden 2016 comes out on Aug. 25.
