Hashmarks For Falcons-Vikings Game Painted Too Close Together In Atlanta (VIDEO)
On Saturday, the Mercedes Benz Stadium hosted the SEC Championship game, and the quick turnaround to get the field ready for Sunday’s Falcons-Vikings game presented some problems.
Pam Oliver reported that the hashmarks were painted way too close together for an NFL game and the officials would be spotting the ball where the hashmarks would regularly appear.
