The New York Jets-Miami Dolphins game in London hasn’t been the best showcase for the NFL as the Dolphins didn’t show up for most of the contest. But in one of the stranger moves by a network, viewers have noticed that CBS is digitally filling in the team logos in the end zones.

The groundskeepers at Wembley Stadium just drew the logos without the team colors so CBS took it upon itself to fill in “JETS” with white while “Dolphins” gets the aqua colors. And when CBS goes to its Skycam shots, you can see the difference. How it’s seen on regular camera angles:

And from the Skycam:

We’ve asked CBS for a statement as to why they’re digitally coloring the logos, but so far we haven’t heard back.

This isn’t on the level of Turner colorizing movie classics like “Casablanca” or “The Maltese Falcon,” but it gives us something to talk about.
