Miami Dolphins Beat the Chicago Bears in Overtime

It’s been an interesting season so far for me shooting for the NFL. I already photographed the longest game in NFL history and I photographed an unbearable hot game against Oakland. Now I had the opportunity to photograph an overtime game where the Miami Dolphins beat the Chicago Bears in overtime.

While most of the other stadiums in the NFL are experiencing cooler weather it still is an oven at Hard Rock Stadium. Photographing for four quarters in that heat takes a lot of out of you and when the game went into overtime, it seemed every photographer along the sidelines was fatigued and was hoping for the game to be over. All the water and Gatorade in the world never feels like it was enough to help out.

For the first first half of the game it was pretty devoid of any exciting action. Nothing really that popped off my camera. But, the second half was a whole other story. Fumbles, interceptions and touchdowns were plentiful. I had some great angles for the Chicago Bears touchdowns as well as the turnovers the Dolphins created.

Usually after the game players are swapping jerseys and having conversations, but not after this game. They were exhausted as well. They all pretty much scattered back to their respective lockerrooms. I could totally relate as I just wanted to get head back to the photo room to edit and upload my photos up the NFL offices.

Here are some of my photos from the game.
