The one where the 12th Man shook the Earth

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Marshawn Lynch's touchdown run moved the earth in a most literal way Saturday afternoon. Seismologists at the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network detected activity at a sensor that is just to west of Qwest Field.

"We looked at the stations nearby and one station in particular just clearly showed the crowd roaring," said John Vidale, director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network

Lynch ran 67 yards for a touchdown, clinching the Seahawks' victory. It was the longest run by a Seahawk in any game since 2005, and it was more than twice as long as any previous run in Seahawks' playoff history.

So just how big a Seismic event was it?

"You would probably be feel it if you were standing outside the stadium," Vidale said. "But it probably didn't travel very far."
