Jimmy Graham Touchdown Catch For Seattle Seahawks

On an 18-yard pass over the middle of the field, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson found the tight end to beat the Houston Texans 41-38. CenturyLink Field exploded in sound and seismic activity, enough that a report by King 5 News states that it registered as a local earthquake.

A Pacific Northwest Seismic Network seismogram showed significant shaking at the time, with that activity lasting at least 45 seconds. It reminded quite a few fans of what took place in 2011 when Marshawn Lynch broke a run against the New Orleans Saints to score a touchdown. That play, in the NFC Wild Card game, became known as “Beast Quake” and cemented Lynch’s legacy with the franchise. Now, the “Jimmy Graham Earthquake” will take its place right next to that memorable moment.
