It was the most exciting play of the opening round of the NFL playoffs this week. Marshawn Lynch's game-clinching 67-yard TD run wasn't just a visual thrill, but the excited crowd in the stands reacting the play actually caused the ground to quake for about 30 seconds. A seismic monitoring station is located next to the stadium and researchers there found a significant change in readings in their monitoring equipment during and after the run. Lots of Saints defenders were feeling crushed after things settled down, too.
