Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs had a massive game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This was his second touchdown of the first quarter and I was tracking him all the way to the end zone. Right before crossing the line, he slowed up and taunted the defender right before flipping into the end zone. I’m always rooting for my home team, Tampa Bay, to win but this was an impressive showing.

Ced Wilson, CeeDee Lamb, Tony Pollard, and Rico Dowdle of the Dallas Cowboys are seen prior to taking the field for a game against the Washington Football Team at AT&T Stadium on Nov. 26, 2020, in Arlington, Texas.
This image was captured as the Dallas Cowboys emerged from the locker room tunnel to take the field for pregame warmups. Due to the COVID restrictions, photographers are no longer allowed to work on the field, so I was positioned in the stands directly above the tunnel. I had planned to photograph the players running onto the field, but they stopped and huddled up. It was a pleasant surprise that I was perfectly positioned to capture. It made for a nice, quiet moment that we don’t often get to see. The patterns of the helmets and the stars on the jerseys help add to the graphic look of the image.
