Seattle's home victory over New Orleans Saturday in the NFC Divisional Playoff was hardly an upset but the Seahawks' fans literally shocked the world after Marshawn Lynch scored the home team's first touchdown.

During the second quarter, Lynch rumbled in from 15 yards out, to give Seattle a 12-0 lead following a New Orleans turnover and a pair of Seattle field goals.

The crowd at Century Link Field then again lived up to its 12th Man reputation, triggering a reaction that rattled parts of the Northwest:

Beast Quake.

The Seahawks won the game 23-15 and no structural damage was reported in Seattle, but New Orleans' season was left in ruins.
