Seattle Seahawks fans have rattled countless opponents, set world records and generated multiple earthquakes with their deafening noise.

Seismologists from University of Washington installed sensors at CenturyLink Field before Saturday's NFC divisional playoff between the Seahawks and the Saints. The machines picked up several small earthquakes, the largest of which came following Marshawn Lynch's 31-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

That touchdown bumped the score to 23-8 in favor of the Seahawks.


Lynch's spectacular, 67-yard touchdown run three years ago in a playoff game against the Saints also generated Seismic activity and was affectionately dubbed the "Beast Quake" after Lynch's nickname, "Beast Mode."

The earthquake generated this year was slightly less powerful than the one from 2011, but still impressive nevertheless.


Lynch had a stellar day rushing with 140 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. The Seahawks will face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game Sunday, and something tells us if Lynch scores a crucial touchdown again, this one might set a new seismic record.
