The Beastmode Backfield Award is named in honor of Marshawn Lynch, who led one of the most dangerous rushing attacks in the NFL from 2011-2015 (and may be coming back to play for the Raiders) and trademarked his running style as "Beastmode." This award is given to the best backfield in the league.

The winner of the 2017 Beastmode Backfield Award is... The New Orleans Saints! The Saints toted the rock for a league-leading 2,757 rushing yards, 15 rushing TDs, 367 receiving yards, 7 receiving yards, and 5.3 Yards Per Carry. The Saints deserved it. I would know; my defense just got gashed by their running game in the Divisional Round, haha.

The remaining teams were ranked as follows:
2. New York/Jersey Jets
T-3. Kansas City Chiefs
T-3. Houston Texans
5. Washington Phoenix
6. Minnesota Vikings

Congratulations to the Saints on their victory and the Beastmode Backfield Award!
