Photos From The Green Bay Packers vs Dallas Cowboys Playoff Game • Green Bay Photographer

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.

Thanks for looking!
