(1090 The Fan) – The cheering and dancing of Seattle Seahawks fans created a minor earthquake during the 2014-15 NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.
Seattle’s successful two-point conversion generated the most seismic activity. It also gave the Seahawks the first lead of the game.
The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network calls these “Dance Quakes” and says that the one generated Sunday was the biggest yet associated with a Seahawks game, even surpassing the original “Beast Quake” from the 2011 Wild Card playoff game.
A pair of interceptions from cornerbacks Byron Maxwell and Richard Sherman, a 24-yard run by Marshawn Lynch, the field goal fake and touchdown pass from Jon Ryan to Garry Gilliam, a Doug Baldwin 28-yard reception, and the game’s winning touchdown catch by Jermaine Kearse also generated seismic activity.
