I enjoy covering any Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field, but covering the annual Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears game is always a little more special and this year having it be a prime-time Thursday night game made it even more exciting. The Packers won the game 23-10. Packers Clay Matthews had 3.5 sacks and gave us photographers some visually friendly sack celebrations.
I started my day looking for a different pre-game feature and was very happy when I found members of the Packers drumline warming up in an empty Lambeau Field. I also felt that I was able to put a nice finish to the story of the game with the mid-field meeting of the two-quarterbacks after the game and then Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers running off the field and tossing a wristband into the stands.
Thanks for taking a look!
