This was not the start that Peyton Manning had in mind.

On the very first offensive play of Super Bowl XLVIII, Denver Broncos center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball before Manning was ready. The play began at the Broncos' 14-yard line and the result was a safety just 12 seconds into the game.

The Seahawks' early 2-0 lead may not prove decisive by the time the game concludes but it will remain a win for those who took any of the prop bets involving a safety.
