SEATTLE, WA - Seahawk fans caused another fan generated earthquake during Saturday's game.

Seismologists said the ground shoot under Seattle's CenturyLink Field as they played the New Orleans Saints.

The scientists think the small fan earthquake that happened during the Marshawn Lynch touchdown could be bigger than Lynch's famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, while they played the New Orleans also during a playoff game.

John Vidale of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington told The Seattle Times (http://is.gd/l3W6Fk ) they will know for sure in a few days.

Hawks fans jumped and stomped their way to magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake in 2011 during Lynch's rambling, tackle-breaking "beast quake" run.
