Photos From The Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears NFL Football Game • November 4, 2013
The Green Bay Packers have been in the next man up mode all year long with the rash of injuries that have plagued the team. Monday night during their game against their divisional rival the Chicago Bears they got hit hard by the injury bug when quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a shoulder injury early in the first quarter. It was hard to keep calm and carry on when Seneca Wallace needed to replace Rodgers. The Bears who were also with their first string quarterback, Jay Cutler, due to injury defeated the Packers 27-20.
During the play that knocked out Rodgers my shooting position was ahead of the line of scrimmage and I only got off one frame before my view was blocked. Luckily the other photographers on my team had a better view of the play and we had ourselves covered.
It was tough to see the MVP quarterback walk off the field in his street clothes.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the game.
