Green Bay Wisconsin Editorial Photographer • Telling The Story Of The Packers Win Over The Raiders.
After what some may have considered a slow start to the season, Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers accomplished a perfect passer rating Sunday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, throwing for five touchdowns and rushing for another, as the Packers beat the Raiders 42-24. The win put the Packers at 6-1 on the season with the second best record in the NFC.
I was happy with how my photos told the story of the game, including my opposite angle from the north endzone on scores that happened in the south. I always look for something different before I head into the stadium and this week after covering the team for over twenty years, I got a shot I really like: a lone Packers fan raising his arms with a can of beer as he greets the Oakland Raiders team buses.
At the end of the game, my responsibility was to get the coaches shaking hands. After sprinting out to the middle of the field as time expired, I got the coaches together and Coach Gruden giving Coach LeFleur that intense Gruden eye. After that I focused on Rodgers as he left the field, catching a nice shot of him raising his arms as he walked into the tunnel. As I mentioned, Rodgers had a perfect passer rating on Sunday and this photo got a ton of play telling that story.
