New York Giants' headlines for Tuesday, 2/4.

Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLifeStadium was the most-watched television program of all-time, according to FOX Sports. An average audience of 111.5 million people watched the Seattle Seahawks trounce the Denver Broncos, 43-8. That broke the Super Bowl XLVI (2011) record of 111.3 million viewers for the New York Giants' upset of the New England Patriots.

The Halftime Show, featuring Bruno Mars, delivered 115.3 million viewers. That is more than the 110.8 million who watched Beyonce last year, and breaks Madonna's 2011 record of 114 million viewers.

Now, on with some football news.

Remember Jared Lorenzen? The Hefty Lefty, backup for Eli Manning in 2006 and 2007, is still playing football. And yes, he is quite hefty.

Lorenzen is listed by the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the CIFL as 6-foot-4, 320 pounds. That might be kind.

Getting out of MetLife Stadium via NJ Transit was apparently a bit of a nightmare. The NFL and the transit agency are reviewing what went wrong. Deadspin has its own take on the transit problems.

Did you see the 9/11 truther who crashed a Super Bowl postgame news conference. A lapse by a private security firm hired by the NFL is being blamed.

The NFL barely dodged a blizzard that hit New Jersey just hours after the Super Bowl ended.
