NBC seemed very excited to debut a new feature on "Sunday Night Football" last weekend . . . but it isn't going over so well on social media.
It's called the 'Green Zone' . . . and it basically does what the digital yellow line already does: It shows where the team needs to go to get a first down.
Now ALL the grass between the line of scrimmage and the first down is shaded a brighter shade of green. The first down yellow line is still there, but it's less bright, and there's also a white line where the line of scrimmage is.

On third downs, see just how far players will have to go at any point during the play to get a first down. pic.twitter.com/cCLdkdLjls
