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.
As the game went on, Griffin was continually serenaded with chants of "RG3" as he helped lead his team to a crushing, 31-6, win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
The game was originally boasted as two middle of the road teams battling it out - yet turned into a show of dominance as Griffin threw four touchdown passes - passing for a total of 200 yards.
Now with a record of 5-6, the Redskins are forcing their way into the playoff discussion.
