This Super Bowl rematch between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons has been invaded by an unwelcome guest, fog.
It was starting to build at Gillette stadium late in the first half, and by the time the Patriots and Falcons began the second half it looked to be settling in for the long haul.

However, when NBC switches to the camera angle behind center, visibility appears fine, except for throwing long passes, and sideline routes.
The Falcons could use some type of act of nature or anything to help them out against the Patriots. late in the third quarter, the Falcons are trailing 0-20.
The Patriots are 6-9 on third down, and the Falcons have missed two field goals. This was one of the most anticipated matchups of the season. They played in a Super Bowl for the ages, in which the Falcons were leading 28-3 late in the third quarter, and the Patriots ended up winning in overtime.
This game has lacked that drama, but who knows, maybe the Falcons are holding off for a few more minutes to get ultimate revenge.
In the meanwhile, enjoy this tweet from CBS Sports that brings the fog and this rematch together perfectly.
