All around the network today, NFL team blogs are discussing their favorite Super Bowl memories. Obviously, this is a lot more fun if you’re a Patriots or Steelers fan. It’s not terribly exciting if you support the Chargers, Bengals, Bills, Browns, Cardinals, Eagles, Falcons, Jaguars, Lions, Panthers, Texans, Titans, or Vikings. So, since “what was your favorite part of watching your favorite team get blown out by the 49ers?” isn’t a very fun question, I ask you, “what was your favorite moment in Super Bowl history?”

For me, the answer is the first play of Super Bowl XLVIII. The Denver Broncos, having lost the coin toss, got the ball to start the game. On their first snap, the center snapped the ball early while Peyton Manning was attempting to audible and the ball shot past him into the end zone. The Broncos recovered the ball, but the result of the play was a safety.

It was only one play and it only turned into two points, but that was the moment I was certain the Broncos were going to get their butts handed to them and it was glorious. The Seattle Seahawks would go on to win 43 to 8 and while every moment of it was enjoyable, that first play was the best.

Anyway, let us know in the comments what your favorite Super Bowl moment was.
