Here are some of my favorite photos from covering the Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks NFL football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin to open the 2017 season. The Packers came out on top thanks to a strong defensive performance that keep the Seahawks from scoring a touchdown. To me the turning point was a strip sack of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson by Packers Mike Daniels to set up a short one play touchdown drive to get the Packers on the scoreboard.
I also got a couple features before the game I like and a couple nice moments of the players after the game so I’m happy with my photos from the day.
Thanks for looking!
