Week 13 of the NFL, Jacksonville Jaguars were 2-9 going into the game and the took full advantage of the Browns mistakes. Good thing about the game, I got to see a few old friends, wide receiver Jeremy Ebert, who I played travel baseball with when I was younger and tight end Danny Noble who I played football with at Toledo.
For the fourth year in a row, I would have to work on Thanksgiving Day covering the Green Bay Packers vs the Detroit Lions. Detroit is 0-9 over the past nine years on Thanksgiving and this was their year! With Aaron Rodgers being hurt the Lions were able to pull out a 40-10 victory.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traveled from warm sunny Florida to play indoors where it’s always 75 degrees. The 2-9 Buccaneers came to play defeating the Detroit Lions 24-21. The only thing I don’t understand about the Lions are how can you have a QB throw for 5,000 yards year after year and a receiver with 9,000 career receiving yards and only score an average of 25 points per game the whole season. I will let everyone thing about that.
After Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers put up some crazy offensive statistics last week, I thought the game against the Bengals would be a good offensive battle but the defense for both teams stepped up. The Bengals came away with the victory.
Following the Miami Dolphins vs Indianapolis vs Colts game, I traveled to Cincinnati for Monday Night Football on ESPN. Monday Night Football is where some of the biggest games are played and the Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals wouldn’t disappoint. The biggest story line of the game was future hall of fame linebacker James Harrison who played for Pittsburgh is now playing for the Cincinnati Bengals. Made for some nice emotional photos towards the end of the game. Let’s get to the photos!
With the Detroit Lions and the Cleveland Browns both playing away this weekend, I had the opportunity to head to Indianapolis to cover the Miami Dolphins vs Indianapolis Colts game. It’s always nice to be able to shoot at a different stadium then the usual ones I cover week in and week out.
Getting around the stadium was extremely easy and the light due to the roof being open made for something different then you see at most NFL stadiums allowing me to make some different pictures. On with the game!
After covering five preseason NFL games, it felt good to cover a game that actually counts. This is my fifth season covering the NFL and ever year its better than the last. The Minnesota Vikings and Adrian Peterson came into Ford Field expecting a victory but after some sloppy plays by both teams the Lions were able to hold on to a victory. I know now that they won’t go 0-16 like the first year I started covering the NFL. Enjoy the images from the win.
