RG3 of America

"Quarterback Robert Griffin III #10 of the Washington Redskins holds an American flag for "Salute to Service" day before being introduced against the Philadelphia Eagles at FedEx Field on November 18, 2012 in Landover, Maryland.


Shooting at the same venue can get repetitive, but never mundane.

We as photographers learn the inner workings of each stadium - we know where the light will be, when the players take the field and who will shine as they attempt to lead their team to victory.

Yet the beautiful part is that nothing is ever the same. Every game is different - weather changes, rules tighten or loosen, players get hurt, traded, and so forth.

With that said, I've worked the tunnel at FedEx Field way too much. I've shot the player introductions time and time again. I've nailed touchdowns, and I've missed my share, too. So I going into the game, shooting for Getty Images, I was hoping for document this game a bit differently.

While I wanted to focus strictly on the action going into the game, I still couldn't contain my curiosity for pregame features.

I found myself blending in during team introductions as quarterback Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins unraveled a flag inside the inflatable tunnel as part of the NFL's "Salute to Service" day.
