- Video shows that Seattle Seahawks fans registered as seismic activity after a recent touchdown. This is not the first time as Seahawks caused the original “Beastquake” in 2011.
The Seattle Seahawks have had one of the strongest home-field advantages in professional football for some time now, with a home record of 37-6 dating back to the 2012 season, and on Sunday, the crowd once again proved just how loud they can get.
After ceding a late touchdown and the lead to Deshaun Watson and the Texans, the Seahawks were eventually left with just over a minute left in the game to drive the field for the game-winning score. Russell Wilson and company did just that, and as Jimmy Graham caught the winning touchdown with just 21 seconds remaining, the crowd at CenturyLink Field erupted.

In fact, the crowd got so raucous that in the lead up and immediate aftermath of the score, the shaking of the stadium caused a spike in seismic activity. The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network posted a video showing the spike as it happened in real time.
As many football fans will remember, this is not the first time that the Seahawks have caused analysts of seismic activity to check on the score of the game. Back in 2011, Marshawn Lynch ran through the Saints so hard that the stadium caused a tremor also reported by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, a run that would later be known as the “Beastquake.”
The Seahawks are currently leading the NFC West and could be poised to make another deep run in the playoffs, so anyone living close to CenturyLink Field might want to batten down the hatches for future Sundays.
