Mason Crosby named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

K Mason Crosby

Packers K Mason Crosby has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week following his 5-for-5 day on field goals last Sunday vs. Detroit.

Crosby made kicks from 26, 52, 31, 42 and 45 yards in the Packers’ 22-9 victory, improving his mark to 9-for-9 on the season. A Packers kicker hadn’t made five field goals in a game in 13 years, and he tied the franchise record for most in a single game, matching Chris Jacke (who did it twice, in 1990 and 1996) and Ryan Longwell (2000).

Crosby has now made 13 straight field goals in the regular season, dating back to 2012. Including last year’s two playoff games, he has made 15 in a row. Crosby holds the franchise record with 23 consecutive field goals made in the regular season, which he set from Week 13 of 2010 through Week 12 of 2011.

This marks the fifth time in his career that Crosby has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, and the first time since Week 7 of 2011.

    For all the haters on Crosby, are you singing another tune now? Guess MM and TT know what they’re doing after all…

    Congratulations to Mason. Keep up the good work. On the other side of the coin it doesn’t say much for what is supposed to be a high powered offense getting into the zone.

    Best part, is they where all right down mainstreet… one was a hair low (could be blocked) but not very… if the goalposts where 1/2 the distance apart I think Mason would’ve been 5 for 5… this is known as Righting the Ship
