Sanders' comments: "This was Eric Berry's first night back in Arrowhead for a regular season game. We announced 12 players that night and he came out 12th. The crowd was amazing, and there was a textured blue sky with light clouds because we had been fighting the rain all day. He had just passed the Kingdom and got the finger in the air pointing to the sky. Everything kind of came together for that night. You have that mix of sun and clouds and it just it all worked. The grass was really green. The blue, the red and the green—it's all so vibrant.

"I think this is one of the best pictures I've ever taken. It's definitely best picture of the year."
