Seahawks get fastest-ever Super Bowl score on opening-play safety
The Seahawks scored a safety on the first play from scrimmage, the fastest ever score in Super Bowl history.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Well that was fast. The Seahawks scored a pair of points on a safety on the first play of the game, when the ball went flying over Peyton Manning's head and into the end zone where it was recovered by Knowshon Moreno.
It was the fastest scoring play in Super Bowl history, taking 12 seconds to happen from the start of the game. It broke the previous record for fastest play in another Manning Super Bowl, when Devin Hester scored for the Bears on the opening kickoff. (It took Hester 14 seconds to score.)
It also made someone a LOT of money, with a Seahawks safety having 40/1 odds for being the first score of the game.
This was the third straight Super Bowl that featured a safety, with both Super Bowl XLVI and Super Bowl XLVII involving a safety.
