Marshawn Lynch caused the earth to move with TD run in Seattle
A Pacific Northwest Seismic Network sensor just west of Qwest Field showed the activity clearly. "We looked at the stations nearby and one station in particular just clearly showed the crowd roaring," said John Vidale, director of the PNSN.
Just how strong was the quakelet? "You would probably be feel it if you were standing outside the stadium," Vidale said. "But it probably didn't travel very far."
Vidale compared the timeline of the above image with video of Lynch's run for Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times:
101 - 103: Ball hiked.
105 - 107: Marshawn Lynch hits the hole.
107 - 109: Lynch breaks through the line.
110 - 112: Lynch breaks another tackle.
102 - 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.
