The error during the Super Bowl ramp up didn't go unnoticed.

The NFL's grounds crew may have forgotten that another team was playing Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

On Jan. 26, the grounds crew mistakenly painted the Broncos logo in the wrong end zone at Levi's Stadium while readying the field for next Sunday's big game. The error didn't go unnoticed on Twitter.

Yahoo Sports' Samuel Lam posted a photo displaying both the correct Broncos end zone, and the still-visible Broncos logo in Panthers' territory. James Martin, a CBS photographer, shared a close-up image of the field, showing the faded remains of the Broncos insignia before the grounds crew corrected the error. 

By the day's end, all was in order on the Santa Clara, California, field. 

The NFL declined to comment.
