On Sunday afternoon, Super Bowl LIII kicked off from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for a matchup between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.
While most of the focus pre-game was about Tom Brady’s future and the legacy he’ll leave behind, the Pats took the ball out of Brady’s hand for the early part of the team’s first drive.
When Brady finally got his chance to throw the ball, he threw an interception.
Throughout all of the early action, fans watching at home were distracted by the camera angles CBS decided to use.
Here’s just some of the reaction from around Twitter.
Does this Super Bowl camera angle seem weird for anybody else?

It’s not a great start to the Super Bowl broadcast for CBS.
As for the actual play on the field, there hasn’t been much to speak of so far.
The Patriots tossed an interception on their first possession and then Los Angeles failed to convert for a first down on its only drive of the day.
New England has the ball once again and are near midfield with just over seven minutes left to play in the first quarter.
Stay tuned for more from the Super Bowl.
