The Denver Broncos had a safety on their first play from scrimmage against the Seattle Seahawks at Super Bowl XLVIII. Thanks to NFL Sound FX, we finally know why.

There appeared to be some issues with communication between quarterback Peyton Manning and center Manny Ramirez. Manning was trying to extend the snap count, but due to how loud it was in the stadium, Ramirez couldn't hear, snapping the ball early and causing the safety.

The great start made Marshawn Lynch show off his dance moves:

The play wasn't a deciding factor in the 43-8 blowout, but it was a sign of things to come for the Broncos that early in the game.
