Super Bowl XLVIII starts with a Seahawks safety

642beea2fcc7801c3adcbefafa607ea5 AP

The first snap of Super Bowl XLVIII was followed closely by the first score of Super Bowl XLVIII.

Manny Ramirez’s snap went over the head of quarterback Peyton Manning and was recovered in the end zone by Denver running back Knowshon Moreno for a safety. That’s a quick 2-0 lead for the Seahawks, the quickest in Super Bowl history at 12 seconds. It was quite loud for the first play, which took place from the Denver 14 and the Seahawks’ 12th man did its job in the same amount of seconds.

It’s now three Super Bowls in a row with a safety and a quick hole for the Broncos, who are now trying to keep the Seahawks off the board on Seattle’s first offensive possession of the game.

Devin Hester’s game-opening kickoff return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLI was the previous record-holder for fastest score in a Super Bowl.

    Weird how loud it is away from Seattle. Put the “piped in noise” accusation to rest forever, idiots.

    And you know some idiot bet $10 on the 1st score of the Super Bowl to be a Safety at 2000-1 odds, looking like a damn Genius winning 20 grand.

    Well, it wasn’t so much a “Seahawks” safety as it was self-inflicted…

    Manning was bending over choking and didn’t see the snap coming in time to stand up straight and catch it.

    Sorry Denver fans couldn’t resist that one

    If Percy wins a ring will it have glass instead of diamonds?

    Anyone who believes “The League’s Crusade Against The Steelers Continues” is a steeler fan, I have a bridge I’d like to sell you in Brooklyn.
