Do not adjust your TV sets.

A thick fog descended over Foxborough, Massachusetts, for Sunday night’s Super Bowl rematch between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. The fog dipped in and out during the first half but sat heavily on the field in the second, making it hard for fans to see action at the far end of the field.

 

The TV picture was also fuzzy for all but the closest closeups, forcing NBC to rely more on the mobile skycam that is manipulated around the field by wires.

The Falcons played like they were in a fog, falling behind 20-0 in the third quarter.
