(KTVI) – The National Football League is considering on making the yellow, first-down line a reality in stadiums.

The imaginary line, created by computer graphics, allows viewers at home to see how far players have to advance while in possession of the football. A First Down Laser System has been developed and it will allow the same line to be projected on the actual field for the viewers in the stands like on TV.

There hasn’t been an official announcement of implementing the technology to stadiums.
