Welcome to The Green Zone for SNF on NBC

posted by Steve Powers - 

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.
