The Seattle Seahawks continued their winning ways in big fashion over the Vikings in Week 11, destroying Minnesota by a final score of 41-20.

Obviously, the offense had quite the day for the Seahawks, which included the return of wide receiver Percy Harvin but the stout Seahawks defense had plenty to celebrate as well, which included defensive end Brandon Mebane who may have won the award for the best Week 11 celebration.

After a first quarter sack of Christian Ponder, Mebane, with the Seahawks leading 3-0 decided to bust out the famed ‘truffle shuffle’ to the delight of the 12th man.

So what exactly is the truffle shuffle? I’d attempt to explain it, though, I’m not sure words can do it justice – so I’l let Mebane handle that below.

The ‘truffle shuffle’ stems from the popular film, “The Goonies” which Mebane is clearly a fan of.


After watching that a few times, I’m starting to think Mebane might not only get the Week 11 award, but might take home the best sack dance of the season.
