When Marshawn Lynch scores, the ground literally shakes.

OK, maybe it doesn't noticeably shake, but according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, the noise produced by Lynch's touchdown actually registered seismic activity. You can see the GIF of the score below.

That touchdown put the Seattle Seahawks up 13-0 over the New Orleans Saints in the second quarter.

Back in the Week 13 Saints-Seahawks matchup—a game the Seahawks won 34-7—the deafening CenturyLink Field crowd created a magnitude earthquake ranging from 1.0 to 2.0 after defensive lineman Michael Bennett returned a Saints fumble for a touchdown.

The Seahawks fans have been bringing the noise all season. In the team's Week 2 29-3 destruction of the rival San Francisco 49ers, the capacity crowd of 68,338 set a Guinness World Record for noise at an outdoor stadium, with 136.6 decibels.

With this being one of the biggest games ever at CenturyLink Field, it's safe to say that fans are excited.

Hat-tip to Ryan Wilson from CBS Sports for the find.
