Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot.
Who’s up today: Patriots running back Shane Vereen, who made an over-the-shoulder touchdown catch, beating Houston’s Barnett Ruud, in the divisional playoffs at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Jan. 13, 2013.
Said Vereen: “Oh, That’s pretty sweet. What should I call that [pattern]? It was a go-around with a little bit of a move inside. It’s something we put in all week. We were able to practice it all week and execute it in the game. [I was thinking], catch the ball, catch the ball. Tom [Brady] threw a perfect pass. I mean, the ball couldn’t have been anywhere else. It was a perfect pass, right in stride, right away from the defender.
“I mean, I would’ve been doing the team an injustice not catching this ball. Yeah, [with the lights], you’ve just got to focus. We practice in the stadium during the week and you get used to it. My concentration was on the ball. I felt him [running] inside of me, but that’s it. I really couldn’t tell how close I was to the end zone. I was just trying to stay inbounds and catch the ball. “
