Posted by Danny O'Neil

To the right is the Seismograph from old Kingdome station of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. It's in color, with frequency (hz) on the vertical access plotted against the time in seconds.

John Vidale, director of the PNSN, broke down the timeline according to Lynch's run, estimating the play began at approximately 98 - 100 seconds on the graph to the left.

Seismogram showing the frequency (hz) vs. the time in seconds, which is plotted along the horizontal axis. The Seahawks came to the line on the play that resulted in Marshawn Lynch's touchdown run at somewhere between 98 and 100 seconds on the graphic.

According to video replays, here is the timeline of the play so you can see where the Seismic activity corresponded to the play on the field:

101 - 103: Ball hiked.

105 - 107: Marshawn Lynch hits the hole.

107 - 109: Lynch breaks through the line.

110 - 112: Lynch breaks another tackle.

112 - 114: Lynch shoves Saints cornerback Tracy Porter, knocking him 5 yards downfield.

117 - 119: Lynch crosses the goal line, corresponding to the biggest burst of energy.

159 - 161: Extra-point is kicked by Olindo Mare.

179 - 181 Possibly the replay was shown in the stadium.

168 - 170: Replay possibly shown in slow motion.

213 - 215: Seattle kicks off to the Saints, play resumes.

Update: Assistant sports editor Jon Fisch pointed out earlier typo listing the stiff-arm of Tracy Porter. It did not occur 110 - 114 as initially indicated, but 112 - 114.
