Crosby concentrates on correction

Nov. 23, 2012
 

Mired in easily the worst slump of his six-year stint as the Green Bay Packers' kicker, Mason Crosby spent this week searching for answers both on the field and in the film room.

After missing two more field goals in Sunday’s 24-20 win over Detroit, Crosby has tried to remain upbeat about his current situation, focusing on another promising day of practice on Friday.

He's also looking forward to this Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium where last December he kicked a 31-yard game-winning field goal to propel the Packers to a 38-35 win over the Giants.

However, that was last season and Crosby firmly understands that.

After making a career-high 85.7-percent of his attempts last season, Crosby has missed six of his last 13 field goals and averaging an NFL-low 61.1 percent after making only 11 of his 18 kicks on the season.

Crosby missed two kicks from 50 and 38 yards against the Lions, but made a 39-yarder to give the Packers a four-point cushion with only 19 seconds remaining.

“I had a great day today, and I hit the ball great on Wednesday, so I’m excited for this week,” Crosby said. “This team is building something special, and I’ve got to do my job to help us win.”
