The Green Bay Packers and their one legged MVP quarterback defeated the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday January 11, 2015 at Lambeau Field in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is nursing a pulled / torn hamstring, but he was still able to lead the Packers to a 26-21 win. The Packers advance to the NFC Championship and will take on the Seahawks in Seattle next weekend.
My game day was basically the same as a regular season game except needing to cover a couple press conferences after the game. For a January game in Green Bay the weather was rather balmy. Temps in the lower 20s and low winds. I bundled up like usual for a winter game, but it wasn’t long before I was opening up layers so i didn’t overheat. When the ball got in to the red zone I even pulled off my gloves.
The battle for the handshake and celebration shots at the end of the game was a bit more of battle with the additional photographers covering the game, but I was happy with the shots I got.
The biggest and most meaningful play of the game, Dez Bryants catch / non catch on the one year line in the final minutes of the game, was on the opposite end of the field from my position in the north end zone, but the other members of my team covering that part of the field got the shots. I got a few frames off with some real long glass that gave us another look at the play.
Here are my shots from the game that I hope tells the story of the day.

The last few Green Bay Packers home games at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin had been a little boring with the Packers jumping out to an early lead and many of the starters being pulled towards the end of the game. The Packers jumped out to an early lead again on Monday night in their game against the Atlanta Falcons and went in to the locker room at halftime ahead 31-7. The Falcons charged back and made it an interesting game, but the Packers still won 43-37.
I was in my usual spot covering the north end zone and most of the Packers scoring took place in the south end zone, so my photos almost make it look like the Packers lost. I was happy with the photos I got of the Packers defense and very happy with a couple of the shots of Packers Davon House breaking up a couple passes intended for Falcons Julio Jones.
Here are some of my favorite photos for the game. Thanks for looking!
I’m late with this blog post from The Green Bay Packers big 26-21 win over Tom Brady and New England Patriots at Lambeau Field on November 30th 2014 at Lambeau Field. I apologize for the late post, but a hectic commercial photography shooting schedule last week got in the way. Tonight is another big game for the Packers as they take on the Atlanta Falcons in a Monday night game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The game is big with the Packers needing to keep on winning to keep pace with the Detroit Lions to win their division and to battle with the Arizona Cardinal for home field advantage in the NFL playoffs.
Here are some of my favorite photos for the game and hopefully I have some great photos from tonight showing the Packers winning their 7th home game of the season.

The Green Bay Packers have been on a roll the last two week in two consecutive home games at Lambeau Field in Green bay, Wisconsin. In those two weeks they have outscored their opponents 108-34. As a sports photographer it’s always exciting to photograph a high scoring game, but it has gotten a little boring in the fourth quarter of those games with the Packers ahead with a demand lead. This week the Packers defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 53-20 in a game that not only did the offense score, but special teams also scored with a punt return and the defense scored two touchdowns. I had two of the big non offensive scores come right in to my lap with Julius Peppers interception for a touchdown and Micah Hyde’s punt return for touchdown. The Packers play the Minnesota Viking on the road this weekend before taking on another hot NFL team, the New England Patriots.
