"Place kicker Matt Prater #5 of the Denver Broncos and teammates stand in the tunnel before taking on the New England Patriots at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on December 18, 2011 in Denver, Colorado. The New England Patriots won, 41-23."

Last Sunday I photographed the New England Patriots taking on the Denver Broncos.

We had an amazing team of Getty photographers to work the game. Since there were four of us, we each had a quadrant of the field to work from. It was the first time I've ever been limited to a certain corner of the field.

While I had literally no action in my corner of the field during the first half, I remembered to be team player and worked the action down-field from my spot. Always up for a challenge, it made me see the game differently.

The game wasn't as hyped up as it was when I was assigned the game. But by the time game day arrived, it was the biggest game of the season.

The game pitted two high-profile players against one another: Brady versus Tebow.

In the process, the Patriots won their sixth consecutive game and clinched a playoff berth in the AFC East. Tebow’s six-game winning streak was snapped in the loss.

As usual, I liked most of my images away from the action. I also found myself moving and focusing more on the quarterback rivalry that seemed to be one one the main story lines coming out of Denver.

Hopefully I'll see one of these teams again in Baltimore for the playoffs.
