Crosby made a game-winning 27-yard field goal in Monday's victory over the 49ers. He also added three other field goals and three extra points in the contest. Crosby bounced back from the worst game of his career in a big way, nailing all seven of his attempts, including one at the final buzzer that gave the Packers the win. Consider his job safe as the Packers head into their Week 7 bye.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy suggested Crosby will keep his job, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "He's got to make those kicks," McCarthy said. "He's a proven highly successful kicker, and I believe in him but he's got to make those kicks." Crosby missed four field goals and a PAT in Sunday's 31-23 loss to Detroit, but he did at least rebound with a successful 41-yarder on his final attempt of the afternoon. The Packers have stuck with him through some rough stretches in the past, but it will be hard to justify the loyalty this time around if he doesn't bounce back with a decent performance Week 6 against the 49ers.
Crosby made one field goal in five attempts and also missed an extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Crosby missed his first five kicks before hitting a 41-yarder late in Sunday's contest. No one invested can really say anything positive about Crosby's day, but the same group will no doubt be hoping the make on the final kick of the day helps the veteran quickly put Sunday's game in the past and get back on track moving forward.
Crosby hit a 41-yard field goal and two extra points in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Crosby put up a whopping 17 points -- not counting any bonuses -- in Week 2, but he finished with a season-low five points Sunday as the Packers' offense put up only 17 points. Crosby has been a bit boom-or-bust through three weeks, but he is off to a good start in the accuracy department, making seven of eight field goals and all seven extra-point attempts.
Crosby made five field goals and two extra points in Sunday's tie with the Vikings. Crosby's big day could have been even bigger had he hit a 52-yard field goal right before the end of regulation, but the 17 points he put on the board were the most of his career, and he chipped in another couple points in leagues that score field-goal distance, hitting kicks from both 40 and 48 yards out. Crosby finished the 2017 campaign with a paltry 78 points. but he is well on his way to reaching the 100-point mark for the 11th time in 12 years with 23 points through two games.
