Well, Super Bowl 48 between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks got off to one of the most interesting starts in game history, and they also made a little bit of history as well.

After the Seahawks won the coin toss and deferred, it was determined that Peyton Manning and the Broncos would be getting the ball first, with most expecting some action right off the bat.

Oh, we were certainly treated to some action alright, as the very first play of the game resulted in a snap going straight over Manning’s head and into the end zone, starting the game off with a safety, also the fastest score in the history of the Super Bowl.

Yeah, that definitely wasn’t something that we all expected when we knew that Peyton Manning was getting the ball first, but you have to get those jitters out of the way as early as you can.

It’s just, you don’t want to give up any points in doing so.
