SEATTLE (AP) -- Marshawn Lynch ran for 148 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns and David Hawthorne returned Vince Young's third interception 77 yards for a clinching score with 4:24 remaining as the Seattle Seahawks beat the Philadelphia Eagles 31-14 on Thursday night.

Lynch, Seattle's hard-charging running back, bulled through Philadelphia for the second-best running day of his career. He carried 22 times and had touchdown runs of 15 and 40 yards.

Golden Tate added an 11-yard TD reception, but the Seahawks' third win in the last four games wasn't secured until Hawthorne stepped in front of Young's pass intended for LeSean McCoy and raced untouched into the end zone.

Young finished with a career-high four interceptions. McCoy had a 1-yard touchdown run in the first half and caught a 2-yard shovel pass from Young that pulled the Eagles (4-8) within 10.
