In what has been nothing sort of a disappointing season, the Oakland Raiders are trying to finish off strong, as they beat the Denver Broncos, 27-14 on Monday night. However, the highlight of the game seemingly came before kickoff, when injured running back Marshawn Lynch took part in the lighting of Al Davis’ eternal flame.
Photographer David Valencia snapped a picture that sent social media into a frenzy, showing Lynch holding out a blunt to light it up off of the flame.
Using the torch to then light up himself hahahahaha pic.twitter.com/GpqumNHTdS

Undoubtedly, Beast Mode is holding up a blunt. Even though marijuana is legal in California, it is a banned substance in the NFL, so it’ll be interesting to see how the league handles it. Nevertheless, people got a kick out of it on twitter.
Marshawn is a national treasure!!!
