Seattle Seahawks fans break sound record, register as earthquake

Seattle Seahawks fans had a goal during Monday Night Football to yet again break the sound record at CenturyLink Field. On December 3, CNN reports that not only did they successfully break that Guinness World Record again but that the noise was so overwhelming that Seahawks fans registered as a mild earthquake.

According to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, there were five separate times during the Seahawks vs. Saints match up that fans were so loud that it recorded as a 1 to 2 range earthquake on the Richter scale. This is not the first time that Seahawks fans have registered on the seismic radar either. In 2011 after Marshawn Lynch ran for a 67-yard touchdown, helping his team clinch a playoff spot, fans set off the meters as well.

The first and most intense boom of the evening came when Michael Bennett scored after a 22-yard run on a Saints fumble. This set the Seahawks game in motion and the Saints never were able to get their momentum. Ultimately the Seahawks routed the Saints, clinching a 34-7 win over one of the other best teams in the NFL on Monday Night. This win secures their place in the playoffs

More importantly, the Seahawks are now 11-1 this season giving them a two game lead in the race for home field advantage. Considering their win-at-home record, this advantage is huge when it comes to hoping for a Seahawks Superbowl this season. Russell Wilson is 14-0 in home games.
