How many shots of Hennessey will Marshawn Lynch take before this football game, one he doesn't even have to play in?

The bruising, all-too-entertaining running back will be back on the gridiron in Buffalo in Week 11, returning to where he started out his 12-year NFL career as the No. 12 pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

A five-time Pro Bowler whose most memorable years very well may have come with the Seattle Seahawks, Lynch will instead be honored by his first team, coming home as the Buffalo Bills' "Legend of the Week" when the Indianapolis Colts are in town this Sunday at Highmark Stadium.

According to the team's official website, Lynch will be there to "interact with 'Bills Mafia' and get them fired up before kickoff," which the fans are more than capable of doing on their own. So it'll be raised to a whole different level of chaos with "Beast Mode" leading the charge.

Lynch will also participate in the "Legend of the Game" giveaway, which could result in a lucky fan getting autographed memorabilia from Lynch and taking pictures with him.

The promo video put out by the Bills' social media team is a highlight reel and comic compilation of epic proportions.

Seriously, who knew we needed "Beast Mode" as a new member of the Marvel or DC Comics world, rivaling the Hulk, in terms of pure strength and the comic relief (no pun intended) of Deadpool?

As many fans noted in response to the Bills' post, it's also very possible that Lynch views his return to Buffalo as an opportunity to visit a certain restaurant for which he gave rave reviews in a now-famous viral video.

Lynch spent 45 games in Buffalo from 2007 to 2010, rumbling for 2,765 yards and 17 touchdowns. He was traded midway through the 2010 season in exchange for two mid-round draft picks, neither of which ultimately panned out. Though, the trade did clear room for somewhat surprising 2010 first round pick C.J. Spiller.
